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.
This is a Splunk Modular Input Add-On for indexing messages from a COAP Server.

You can search for these log sources in the
_internal index or browse to the
Logs menu item on the App's navigation bar.
The default heap maximum is 64MB.
If you require a larger heap, then you can alter this in
You can declare custom JVM System Properties when setting up new input stanzas. Note : these JVM System Properties will apply to the entire JVM context and all stanzas you have setup
The way in which the Modular Input processes the received COAP messages is enitrely pluggable with custom implementations should you wish.
To do this you code an implementation of the com.splunk.modinput.coap.AbstractMessageHandler class and jar it up.
Ensure that the necessary jars are in the
If you don't need a custom handler then the default handler com.splunk.modinput.coap.DefaultMessageHandler will be used.
