"More than just a log correlation"

July 25, 2013  |  By MickieMonster

 |  Version: Splunk 5.0.2

Pros

Quick to install
Free apps
Good support
No databases - don't constantly have to build bridges
Real real-time
Saving me loads of time

Cons

Price - it's cheap if you can find more than one way to use it, but if not it's kind of expensive - but it works better than many of my other tools added together so it's justifiable

Summary

They have a free version that's great, so everyone should try it. It can be a little technical so definitely read the docs and go to their blogs for good fast answers. It's become our go-to tool for finding and fixing problems. We are moving it to security use now. Worth the time and effort.

 |  Version: Splunk 4.0.10

Pros

free
free apps

Cons

There is so much you can do with the product

Summary

It is totally free to index up 500MB per 24 hour period. Way more than any home or small business uses. I use it at home and my company uses it to manage their massive datacenters around the world

Updated on Nov 4, 2012

Web interface

Highly Configurable
Fast
Scalable

none that I am aware of

Summary

Best of the log servers examined as "Director of Network Operations" and 20+ years of building data centers and large scale networks you come to realize that centralized log management is a key to a smoothly operating and successful network operations department.

This product beat both commercial and open source solutions. This review is for the Linux Server version in 2008 which was fully tested by us at the time.

 |  Version: Splunk 4.0.10

Pros

This seems like a cool product, but it's a trick

Bait -n- switch -- classic!
