Overall Satisfaction with Splunk

Splunk is really useful while analyzing dynamic data. I have been using Splunk for 2 years and I really find it very useful, especially working with bigger datasets.

Graphical display of results is really useful while doing analysis of big data. Really useful for dynamic datasets, like network packet flow analysis. Not ver useful for static data.
