  • Like any tool, if you use it, it does need care and feeding. If you change your log structure or location, update it in Splunk or you'll have missing info.
  • Don't use it as a reactionary tool, it should be the first tool you go to.
  • We use another product for monitoring, but the data is not helpful in their product. We started bringing that data into Splunk and it's actually useful to us now.

  • Great for the smaller teams as one individual can easily find issues across multiple systems from one location.
  • The amount of time and manpower saved may not be enough to make up for the overall cost of Splunk Enterprise.
  • Less time required trying to locate specific issues from logs.

  • Ease of collecting IP for blacklisting.
  • Generation of metrics against compromised accounts based on location and time of the year. It helped in launching phishing education campaign before hitting the most vulnerable month of the year.
  • It helped in neutralizing vulnerable word-press sites across the campus, leading to the decrease of account compromise.

  • Splunk Light allowed us to get started in the SIEM world. It allowed us to get a feel for what features we need and don't need.
  • Splunk Light made diagnosing the root cause of errors easier, as it was simple to correlate logs from multiple sources.

  • Splunk log analysis helped us understand backend error much better than ever and improved number of errors/ week significantly after resolving those.
  • Charting vendor calls/service helped us understanding default looping/logic which in turn reduce vendor calls and vendor bill/call.
  • Splunk alerting on system resources helped us take necessary actions to tackle the traffic under heavy load condition without impacting user experience.

  • There are a lot of positive impacts that Splunk had made, we have real-time exception alerting which is very useful
  • We have report generation out of the logs which again helped us in many ways.
  • The only negative thing I can say is that it requires good learning and that takes a long time
