  • Splunk Use Cases and Deployment ScopeAlthough still in the final implementation stage, Splunk has allowed us to troubleshoot our software suite more efficiently. Our monitoring and engineering team can now rely on the syslog and log correlation capabilities of the Splunk to pinpoint where the issue is.

    Pros : Log correlationAlertingSyslog

    Cons : Would like to see more integrated tools and supported vendors (such as F5, Checkpoint, Palo-Alto, etc.).

  • Splunk is a fantastic monitoring and operational intelligence tool and now we are all trained up here at Datalicious with certificates to prove it. The most frequent use case is for systems administrators, but we set out to play around with it and see how we could use it for web analytics. We realised that we could use its powerful, expressive search language and its intuitive charting & visualisation features to do analytics work that’s more difficult, more expensive, or simply not possible, in other web analytics suites.

  • We found Splunk to be a powerful, if complicated, tool. Moving from a simple syslog server or event viewer with a "search" command to Splunk is not a one day operation. But Splunk pays off in the power that it brings, and the information it can pull out of your logs. Network managers who look at their logs every day, and those who wish they could get useful performance, capacity and security information out of the gigabytes of log data stacking up should take a close look at Splunk.

    Those who work in large companies are often found themselves having to deal with specific problems, problems that include multiple technologies involved at the same time on the same subject or the same operation. An example would be a complex web infrastructure that includes so different applications, different databases, different server, different clients and mobile devices, various network configurations or heterogeneous network equipment, websites and much more. If anything in this infrastructure creates a disservice (in example a timeout, a down of connectivity or any other issue included in the process ).

    We have to (first of all) to solve the problem but especially to trace the origin of the issue and prevent this from happening again, in some cases, this situation is not at all easy to deal with. In these cases (and in many others) comes to the aid Splunk with its centralized system for monitoring.

    Pros :

    • The strength of Splunk is being able to manage and monitor complete autonomy across the technology infrastructure of a company, it managing totally centralized so a huge amount of data.
    • Via Splunk you can then monitor and do thorough analysis of all the different application transaction of each element forming part of the infrastructure, thanks to these characteristics Splunk is therefore certainly one of the best Operational Intelligence software.
    • Imagine you have a fault or outage of a certain application, once identified the time frame in which this happened, you can go to analyze the data stored by Splunk, analyze every single component that can be involved in that range time, and going to analyze the different components in what detail was because of the outage.
    • The analysis is also greatly facilitated by the availability of easily queried detailed dashboard. The searches are optimized and very performing, right require a minimum of experience as regards the syntax to use.
    • You can also set up several automated tasks such as alerts \ triggers.
    • You can start using it by running the free download.

    Cons :

    • It is a fairly expensive software.

    I think that Splunk is an excellent software for log analysis (I mean, we're using for log analysis and for us it's a great one). We use Splunk for log analysis, so we collect inside Splunk logs across dozens of software (business, financial, web and so on). Then Splunk is useful for his power with big and heterogeneous data. We have created a lot of useful reports and some dashboards to make a better analysis. Now, we don't need to search in different log types with different log structures (and software to make analysis on), and everything is centralized on the Splunk server (servers, I mean).

    Pros :

    • Patterns analysis, statistics, graphics, and dashboards.
    • It's cool that you can zoom and search for a specific point in time inside your data.
    • You can also create email alerts for certain conditions (software usage, hardware fault, etc..).
    • It's cool the "data synthesis" feature, where you can find the last update and data count, with hosts, sources, etc.
    • About dashboards: you have columns and bar graphs, scatter plot, KPI, radials and lot of them.
    • It's easy to create a new pivot with filters and rows/columns split.
    • The best of Splunk for me: powerful for analysis on big data, fast during searches.
    • You can also export and print your reports or you pivot and your dashboards. You can choose the time window (one hour, but also minutes and seconds, to one week and so on) for the data grab interval.

    Cons :

    • You have to read a little bit of documentation before using and working with Splunk.
    • You have to know exactly how to search and find data, but it's not a problem at all.
    • It's a little bit expensive, and you pay for Gb of space (if I'm well informed about that). It's a little bit tricky to setup and install, but with some days the whole system is up and running quite smoothly.
