    We are planning to integrate CA UIM with Splunk to send alarms and data.

    You have three options I believe as follows:

    1. Retrieve the QOS/alarms using the REST interface in UIM
    2. Retrieve the QOS/alarms directly from the database
    3. Write a custom probe to listen on the bus and send QOS/alarms to Splunk.

     

    Number 3 would be my preference as the most scalable option but will take some skilled development.

    Number 1 is the easiest to implement

    Option1 - you can pull metric data and alarm data out of UIM using the REST interface that comes with the product.

    See docs here

    Option 3 - you can write a custom probe in java or perl which uses the UIM sdk to listen on the UIM message bus for the performance metric data and/or alarms and send the data directly to Splunk using its API

    See docs here

     

    Cheers
