Overall Satisfaction with Splunk

Splunk is used by our customers either for log analysis, or getting insights in performance issues. Most of the users of Splunk are in Ops -- they are focused on keeping the lights on and getting ahead before the the problem occurs. The main business problems which customers attempt to solve are - Security breaches and Fraud analysis and performance diagnostics.
  • Log Aggregation and Ingestion
  • Search and Analytics
  • Operational Intelligence - identify patterns in performance bottleneck
  • Setting up the log monitors and data ingestion process
  • Search Queries - they have a new Data model and UI, but it needs more improvement
  • Faster problem isolation
  • Identify patterns in Operational Performance data
  • Proactive monitoring
Traditional Log file monitors
Open source tools
It's the best tool out in the market.
I would suggest that Splunk is best suited if

- If you are drowned in log files and don't have any clue of where your problems are?
- If you are reactive and not looking at patterns or problem bottlenecks?
- Would like to get Business Intelligence from your Operational / Log file or / dynaTrace Performance Data
