We want to have access to the cloud management console database to download data e.g. inventory data, performance data by minute,hour,day, weeks,month ,years etc.
We want to store this data in our SPLUNK infrastructure to have consolidated view of IBM Entrperise pool 2.0 data in a single glass of pane and not accessing a lot of data sources and portals.
