Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring

We use Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring to keep track of hundreds and hundreds of device endpoints. With the Universal Forwarder deployed to these endpoints, my team gains visibility into each of these devices that we have never had in the past. We can also customize the exact data we receive from each device or group of devices. The monitoring helps to detect the exact instance a device has a problem, and in some cases automatically remediate the issue.
  • Endpoint Monitoring
  • Script Deployment
  • Data Aggregation
  • Needs a way to display interactive dashboards to outside users
  • Embedded reports need to be simplified
  • Dashboard customization could be enhanced
  • Reduced infrastructure downtime
  • Detecting problems in the environment more quickly
Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring is the only product of its kind that I've used and I've been very happy with it.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring is really well suited for an enterprise that needs to monitor a large number of endpoints or transactions. Splunk excels at ingesting, storing, and aggregating data. This enables a company to trend its data over time, analyze it, and find trends and patterns in the data. It may not be ideal in a smaller environment with few endpoints or a minimal number of transactions. It can bring quite a bit of value but this needs to be weighed against infrastructure, license, and usage costs.
