Anyone using Humio or Splunk as the database collecting query results? Any pro-tips for a noob?

Hi! I'm using splunk and I collect results via HTTPS. For that I needed to develop a proxy-forwarder that takes results from osquery, modifies them and forwards to Splunk HEC

Thanks! That's what we'll probably have to do also.
I was hoping there'd be a pre-existing tool but we might use a log collector agent (nxlog, syslog etc) to send the data over TLS.

In general you can forward the logs via rsyslog, but the overall scheme will be like osquery -> disk -> rsyslog -> splunk
which can affect IO
in my case disk IO is expensive, so I don't store anything on disk and forward the logs to Splunk right from memory via HTTPS 😃

Good point. We're already using nxlog on almost everything but a lot of that data's probably from memory rather than disk.
