Splunk on Splunk (S.o.S) add-on for Windows

Splunk Labs
This app has been archived. Learn more about app archiving.
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
On April 8, 2019, this add-on has been deprecated and reached its End of Life on July 7, 2019. For more information about the end of availability and support for this add-on, see https://www.splunk.com/blog/2019/03/18/end-of-availability-splunk-built-apps-and-add-ons.html?April.

The Splunk on Splunk Add-on is a collection of inputs for the Splunk on Splunk (SoS) app - http://www.splunk.com/goto/sos

Important: You do not need to install the S.o.S add-on on a Splunk instance where the S.o.S app is already installed. The S.o.S app ships with the same data inputs.

What is this add-on for, then?

This S.o.S add-on allows you to pull in resource usage data from remote Splunk instances running on Windows for display in your existing instance of the Splunk on Splunk app. To enable this, install and configure this S.o.S add-on on Windows search-peers or forwarders to track the resource usage of Splunk.

NOTE: You must enable the data inputs included in this add-on before they can report resource usage information. By default, these inputs are disabled. Refer to the README file for more information.

For more details on how to set up S.o.S and its add-on to monitor Splunk's system resource usage, please refer to the following Splunk Answers:


  • PowerShell version 2.0.
  • Local PowerShell script execution must be enabled. See the README file for details.
  • Splunk on Splunk app version 2.3 or higher is required to properly use the events produced by this add-on.
