We had slowness, but didn't know where. We quickly would find out if it was the network, database, app server, webserver, or otherwise. They don't like me saying this, but it's a great "finger-pointer".

Splunk Enterprise

Splunk is a great data analytics tool for you if you have a large amount of data to analyze. Splunk provides accurate and real-time analysis of data through its dashboard. But if you not quite a technical person or not willing to learn Splunk before using it, I will not recommend it to you. Also, Splunk is less appropriate for static data.

Pros

  • Check code for slow performance
  • Targeted results for any issues
  • Detailed information about code performance

  • SPLUNK has a quick learning curve and can be easily self-taught. For example, there are plenty of resources available such as tutorials and search tools. There is really no prerequisite for learning how to use Splunk.
  • SPLUNK Enterprise provides plenty of useful documentation and user support which makes it easy for anyone to learn and start using SPLUNK in a very short period of time. There are also examples and user feedback that is helpful if you need more advanced implementations.
  • SPLUNK is very powerful, yet simple. For instance, you can set up a dashboard in one day provided you have admin rights and access to the data you want to Splunk.

Cons

  • The initial set up for some parts of the features could be better documented.

  • We are using Splunk 6.0 version which is better in terms of performance as compared to its older versions, but it slows down, started using more server resources like memory, cpu time etc than expected, I guess this is one area where improvement is needed.
  • Splunk queries are slightly complex when it comes to new or less experienced people, if we can make it more simple that will be awesome. But I must say it is doing its job very well.

We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

Support from Splunk to our company is extremely good . Our team developed many dash boards , reports and alerts in Splunk which saved so many hours of our development time and made us very very efficient . We are extremely happy with current functionality provided by Splunk and have no complaints at all . I would definitely recommend it to everyone

Alternatives Considered

New Relic is only SaaS and keys off of AppDex scoring (i.e. industry baselines) and not on my application's baselines. Where most of our stuff is custom apps, going off of industry wasn't valuable to us. It was also cost prohibitive

I have used base syslog, which does not have the parse capabilities and Arcsight which has major limitations. Splunk is easy to roll out and very easy to evaluate. The interface is very intuitive and there are a lot of Splunk apps for different devices and technologies which makes the rollout and ROI time faster. Also, the SE's at Splunk are awesome.

Return on Investment

  • It's had a good ROI and solved some problems we've been working on for a while.

  • It has been helping with alerting on certain attacks on site and monitoring server health.
  • It slows down during high traffic volume days - ( major 5 days of the year )
