Campground: CloudForms + Splunk

Great co-hosted Red Hat & Splunk discussion about CloudForms-Splunk integration!

Goal: Measure CloudForms utilization by date/time, by user, by cloud povider, and totals.

Simple rsyslog config to send the right data over into Splunk, then just add the “Splunk for Red Hat CloudForms” app — the metrics stated in the above goal are there, right out of the box. ┬áIt really is (or at least seems to be) that easy!

And yes — the Splunk guys know Steve Maresca (and UConn) *very* well.
