Overall Satisfaction with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring

As the engineering team, we use Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring mainly to monitor the application usage and system load (DevOps) together. We do share some metrics with other teams within the organization (marketing, BizDev, Product, and so on) mainly to understand our user usage and main flow.
  • Easy integration with the code and infrastructure.
  • Easy to define new (and complex) metrics.
  • Advance alerts mechanize.
  • Better integration with our clients (native mobile clients SDKs will be great).
  • A way to easily tag filters and move them across metrics/formula.
  • Alert system to easy false [alarm] and hard to configure.
  • Be able to have group more dimensions (and have more values on each).
  • Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring helps us to detect and monitor potential problem[s] (before they happen).
  • Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring helps us to fatly understand [the] root cause of a problem in the system (when we have the right metrics),.
  • We can't easily monitor our client usage with Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.
Being a SAS reduce[s] our infrastructure is the main reason for using Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.
