    "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

    "The Best Logging Server bar none...(Linux Version)"

    December 29, 2010   |   By jnridlinghafer

    Version: Splunk 4.0.10

    Pros

    Easy to install
    Easy to use
    Opensource
    Accepts everything from hand written script logs, to load F5 balancers, Cisco routers & switches, OS Logs and alerts.
    Web interface
    Completely Search-able
    Highly Configurable
    Fast
    Scalable
    Easy on the Resources

    Cons

    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.

    October 12, 2010   |   By pculley1

    Version: Splunk 4.0.10

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The product advertises as free, but you download it, then you have to pay to use it -- LAME!!

    Summary

    Bait -n- switch -- classic!
