Really good for identifying the production issues

  • March 28, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Every time when we have production issues, the 1st thing is to open the splunk and check the error messages.
The other feature is also nice: keep tracking the production environment health status periodically. We did find some potential issues which our client did not report and fix them before our clients finding.
What do you dislike?
The way of displaying the error log sometimes take time to scroll it when opening the item.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Checking the production health status.
Quickly identifing the errors
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Quickly identifing the errors, periodically checking the production health status and performance. It works really well

Splunk is the de facto leader

  • March 24, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
* search bar and query language
* integrations / add ons
* source code access to splunk enterprise
* source code access to any splunk app
What do you dislike?
* no real good support or process for app development and publishing
* app development is kind of weird and difficult
* really hard to debug configs and/or searches
* splunk doesn't have a solid identity anymore
* overly sales-heavy organisation; hard to find someone to actually help you
* documentation is written in a vacuum mostly, especially in respect to how to run / size it
* big learning curve for users slows adoption
* crap 2FA / SAML / enterprise auth support
* no publicly visible bug or feature request database
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
* great flexibility in investigations
* decent return on investment
Recommendations to others considering the product:
come with an open mind, and open pockets


    Publishing

Splunk Cloud

  • January 04, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The potential of Splunk is great. A large store of additional plugins.
What do you dislike?
We had some major issues with Splunk cloud and their indexing specifically of objects stored in AWS S3. Support was slow and not very useful. At one point Splunk Cloud introduced a bug that broke all of our logs inputs and it took over a month for them to fix the issue.

Though the potential for Splunk was great on Splunk cloud we couldn't use 90+% of the addon apps and we had constant issues.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Centralized logging and log aggregation. We need a solution in this space but Splunk doesn't seem to be the right fit for us.

Very useful for Data Analytics

  • April 21, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
System setup is simple and there is good support for this product. Very easy to analyze data. and create dashboards. Queries execute instantaneously, and the result updates dynamically based on the incoming real time data.

There are many plugins available (free and paid), which can provide additional insights to data. I like using the Google Maps plugin and WebGL Globe visualization, and I recommend to use that in case the data contains the physical location (latitude and longitude).
What do you dislike?
It is expensive for commercial use. One needs to be conversant with Unix style commands for using Splunk.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Yelp Dataset Challenge: Analyzing Yelp Data to identify an ideal business domain and neighborhood to setup a new business within Phoenix, Arizona.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
This is a very simple and powerful tool to perform Data Analytics.
