Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Enterprise

Splunk is used for application logs monitoring and system health checks for production environment and performance environment.
  • Best tool to do log monitoring and creating intuitive dashboards and charts
  • Best for setting up alerting for application logs
  • The tool needs to integrate AI to understand the system logs and alerting should be based on the auto learning.
  • 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 )
For anything related to the application backend logs and monitoring, it's very appropriate to use, based on which we can create various dashboards / charts. For server health / monitoring, Splunk logs are not very helpful. It completely relies on log statements, if statement is not formatted in standard format, and it gives inaccurate results.
