Systems administrator that can't live without splunk

  • January 26, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Its incredibly powerful search engine, its amazingly quick for how much data it processes and presents.

The setup and upgrades are kind technical, nothing has gone wrong so far, but it seems kind of scary to run through the upgrade guide and hope the rpm upgrade works.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Quality Assurance, Performance monitoring, Capacity metrics, Security auditing
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You will be amazed with how useful splunk is, once you start routing logs to it you wont be able to stop.

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.

Best Software Product We Own

  • April 03, 2015
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
My company has been using Splunk for several years now and we can't keep up with departmental demand to add more data to it and build more apps to visualize that data. Splunk's value is in it's simplicity. Ingestion of new data sources is very simple. You can also perform simple searches, i.e. "error", "warning" or perform very complex searches using the splunk search language. Finally, the ability to turn those search results into interactive visualizations in minutes is incredible.
What do you dislike?
Its cost is too high which limits adoption at the rate we would like.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use it to centralize our machine and application logs. We use it for diagnostics for system problems, i.e. finding which servers are experiencing the most volume of errors. We also use it as our security intelligence solution alerting us to everything from firewall attacks to infected desktops. Finally, we've found niche' uses for it including better visualization for our IT service management solution and application performance monitoring.
