The HiveMQ Splunk Extension enables you to post your MQTT messages as well as your HiveMQ metric data to a Splunk HTTP Event Collector (HEC). This allows for MQTT topics to be mapped directly to Splunk indexes and forward messages to multiple Splunk instances in a high-performant, scalable and reliable manner.
