JMS Messaging Modular Input

Splunk Cloud
This is a Splunk modular input add-on for polling message queues and topics via the JMS interface.

JMS is simply a messaging API and is a convenient means by which to write 1 modular input that can talk to several different underlying messaging providers : MQSeries(Websphere MQ), ActiveMQ, TibcoEMS, HornetQ, RabbitMQ,Native JMS, Weblogic JMS, Sonic MQ etc..

The Python code in this App is dual 2.7/3 compatible.
This version of the App enforces Python 3 for execution of the modular input script when running on Splunk 8+ in order to satisfy Splunkbase AppInspect requirements.
If running this App on Splunk versions prior to 8 , then Python 2.7 will get executed.

For details of the support we offer for our Apps , browse to : https://www.baboonbones.com/#support

This App is fully AppInspect passed for installing in your own hosted Splunk Enterprise environments or on your own hosted Splunk Forwarders and forwarding the collected data into Splunk Cloud or installing directly in Splunk Cloud.

Release Notes

Version 2.2.6
June 18, 2022

Version 2.2.5
April 26, 2022
  • In order to support huge modular input configuration xml strings when users want to run a very large number of inputs on 1 single instance of this app , we had to change the way that the child java process is invoked. Previously the xml string was passed as a program argument which could break the max argument size in the Linux kernel. Now we changed the logic to pass the xml string to the java process via the STDIN pipe.

  • The app performs periodic socket pings to the splunkd management port to determine if splunkd is still alive and if splunkd is not responding , usually because it has exited or is not network reachable, then the app self exits it's running java process.The default timeout is now 300 seconds. You can change this timeout value in bin/jms.py by setting the SPLUNKD_TIMEOUT_SECS variable.

Version 1.3.7
Sept. 17, 2014

Changed the point in the code where client ID is set for durable topic subscriptions

Version 1.3.6
Feb. 21, 2014

Added a LocalConnectionFactory for ActiveMQ

Version 1.3.5
Jan. 25, 2014

Added the ability to declare custom JVM System Properties in your stanzas

Version 1.3.4
Jan. 24, 2014

Minor cosmetic fix

Version 1.3.3
Jan. 24, 2014

Added system property javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword to LocalMQConnectionFactory

Version 1.3.2
Jan. 23, 2014

Added a custom local JMS resource factory for Websphere MQ users that allows you to create a MQConnectionFactory class instance directly vs looking it up via JNDI.

The implementation class name you can declare in you stanza is : com.splunk.modinput.jms.custom.factory.LocalMQConnectionFactory

It depends on the MQ JMS jar files being in SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/jms_ta/bin/lib

Parameter values supported are (showing example values) :


You declare these in the stanza also in a key=value string , comma delimited :


Version 1.3.1
Nov. 9, 2013

Changed suffix to .spl
Removed field validation constraints when selecting local mode

Version 1.3
July 9, 2013

Updated configuration screen , hopefully it is simpler and more intuitive

Version 1.2.2
June 4, 2013

More verbose error logging ++ Removed usage of hostname for REST callbacks and replaced with localhost to alleviate issues where admins haven't setup local DNS correctly

Version 1.2.1
March 28, 2013

Added support for very large message payloads, basically a refactoring of the XML streaming output so that SplunkD can correctly process large message payloads

Version 1.2
Feb. 27, 2013

Refactored the core engine so that now you can declare a pluggable JMS Message handler.For the most part you'll probably just rely on the default message handler that is part of the mod input. But given that a message producer can basically put anything in the message payload, there may be scenarios where you need some custom handling for the raw message payload ,so this new features provides this flexibility.

Version 1.1.5
Feb. 21, 2013

Patched a hole whereby the "disabled" property is not passed to the Mod Input by SplunkD when it is first created

Version 1.1.4
Feb. 21, 2013

Added more detailed error logging (written to $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log) for troubleshooting

Version 1.1.3
Feb. 20, 2013

Fixed a possible(in theory) race condition scenario at startup ++ Added support for Queue Browsing , user can choose browsing mode(dump all messages or output summary stats about the queue) and the browsing frequency.

Version 1.1.2
Feb. 17, 2013

Some core framework tweaks++Added config option so users can specify whether or not to strip newline characters from the message body

Version 1.1.1
Feb. 7, 2013

Added runtime support for solaris, aix, freebsd, hp-ux***Added support to prefix your destination name with a server identifier , which now makes it possible to setup jms stanzas that have the same destination name but on different servers

Version 1.1
Feb. 5, 2013

Added REST API polling calls to the mod input so that it can poll SplunkD for the enabled/disabled status of each queue/topic stanza and stop message polling threads accordingly or terminate the entire mod input process if all queue/topic stanzas have been disabled.Using the Splunk Java SDK v1.0 for the REST API call, hence splunk.jar is now included in this release.

Version 1.0.3
Jan. 17, 2013

Added better handling of Binary message types

Version 1.0.2
Dec. 27, 2012

Added support for providing user/pass for the topic/queue

Version 1.0.1
Dec. 19, 2012

Cosmetic fix, added screenshot.

Version 1.0
Dec. 18, 2012
