SPLK-DSP - Implementing Splunk Data Stream Processor (DSP) 1.2


Duration: 4.0 days

This 4 day certification & training course is designed for the experienced Splunk administrators who are new to a Splunk DSP. This hands-on class provides the fundamentals of deploying a Splunk DSP cluster and designing pipelines for core use cases. It covers installation, source and sink configurations, pipeline design and backup, and monitoring a DSP environment.


Please refer to course overview

Module 7 - Working with 3rd party Sources and Sinks

  • Read from and write data to pub-sub systems like Kafka
  • List sources supported with the collect service
  • Transform data from Kafka and normalize
  • Write to S3

Module 8 - Working with Metrics and Traces

  • Onboard observability data (log, metric, and trace) into DSP
  • Transform metric data for Splunk indexers and Splunk SignalFx
  • Transform trace data for Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Route metric data to Splunk indexers and SignalFx
  • Send trace data to Splunk SignalFx

Module 9 - Streaming ML Plugin

  • Describe the advantage of using DSP Streaming ML plugin
  • Enable the Streaming ML plugin in DSP
