This project provides a simple JavaScript interface for logging to HTTP Event Collector in Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud.

  • An HTTP Event Collector token from your Splunk Enterprise server.


First, update npm to the latest version by running:

sudo npm install npm -g

Then run:

npm install --save splunk-logging


See the examples folder for usage examples:

  • all_batching.js: Shows how to configure a logger with the 3 batching settings: batchInterval, maxBatchCount, & maxBatchSize.
  • basic.js: Shows how to configure a logger and send a log message to Splunk.
  • custom_format.js: Shows how to configure a logger to log messages to Splunk using a custom format.
  • manual_batching.js: Shows how to queue log messages, and send them in batches by manually calling flush().

Basic example

var SplunkLogger = require("splunk-logging").Logger;

var config = {
    token: "your-token-here",
    url: "https://splunk.local:8088"

var Logger = new SplunkLogger(config);

var payload = {
    // Message can be anything; doesn't have to be an object
    message: {
        temperature: "70F",
        chickenCount: 500

console.log("Sending payload", payload);
Logger.send(payload, function(err, resp, body) {
    // If successful, body will be { text: 'Success', code: 0 }
    console.log("Response from Splunk", body);
