Splunk is a very useful, lightweight and simple tool to analyze logs. As a computer science student who loves coding, it is much more convenient to use. I can build custom queries for myself or a subset of the users. The language is much simpler than SQL and is much faster as well for large amounts of data. It is highly scalable and with a customizable dashboard, it becomes even more useful than LogRhythm which is not that flexible.
