Red Hat Releases Ansible Tower App for Splunk
September 26, 2016

Red Hat announced the availability of the Ansible Tower App for Splunk, an application that integrates Ansible Tower by Red Hat with Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud.

The application brings the power and variety of Splunk analytics queries to Ansible Tower automation, and enables Ansible Tower and Splunk customers to view rich Ansible automation data in Splunk solutions where it can be correlated with other data sources throughout the application delivery lifecycle, providing new levels of operational intelligence.

The Ansible Tower App for Splunk enables customers to more deeply analyze the data generated by Ansible Tower automations and generate customized reports. These reports can then be shared between teams to facilitate operational decisions and activities. Ansible Tower data stream now available in the Splunk platform includes:

- Ansible Tower system tracking data imports Ansible system facts into the Splunk platform, including details about services, packages and even hardware data. This data offers administrators the necessary tools to audit and verify that machines are in compliance, see how machine configurations have drifted over time, and compare system configuration across machines.

- Ansible Tower activity streams pulls the full output of Ansible Tower job status including job details, activity streams, and Ansible run logs. This data helps administrators understand the efficiency of their automated processes.

- Ansible Tower administrative event data indicates which user made what changes and when they were made. This enables organizations to have a detailed audit trail for compliance and remediation.

Tim Cramer, Head of Ansible Engineering, Red Hat, said: “This new integration with Splunk Platform enables our users to add significant functionality to the system tracking features that Ansible Tower already offers. Pairing the powerful automation of Ansible Tower with the Splunk Platform’s operational insights across the build pipeline will help our users to report on facts across systems and job output, providing the consumable data they need to make decisions about their IT infrastructure and processes."

Jon Rooney, Senior Director, IT Solutions Marketing, Splunk, added: “Automation data streams are incredibly rich sources of operational insight, providing a wealth of information about what’s happening in a modern enterprise IT environment. With the new Ansible Tower application for Splunk, users can directly access the Ansible Tower audit and metadata streams from within the Splunk platform, providing visibility into the provisioning, deployment and configuration management task automated by Ansible.”
