The Splunk Enterprise platform allows users to process and index most forms of data in their native format. It includes data indexing tools, which enable users to locate specific data across large data sets.

The software is designed to serve users with limited technical expertise. A key selling point is the platform's scalability, which allows it to grow with the amount of data it is needed to process; up to at least 100 terabytes per day. To ensure users always have access to their data, even in the event of a system disruption, this platform features built-in failover and disaster recovery capabilities.

Deployment options include both on-premise and SaaS (Software as a Service). Subscription pricing is based on the amount of data indexed per day, and pricing decreases as the amount of data indexed increases. There are perpetual and term license pricing options as well.

Cons

I have been using this for last one and half year but can say a single negative point of this too.

Splunk - Log management, analysis and action software

Identify and resolve quickly your operations and security matters with this great application.

Pros

All in one solution to collect logs, analysis, diagnose and report. The application has a nice console where it shows all the necessary information with some very nice graphics and information.

Cons

Free for 500M/day but a bit expensive if you need to collect more, or have the need to have more users logging in.

amazing tool to look at your application behaviour

best tool to monitor logs of your application

Pros

Main purpose of this tool for us is to monitor the logs of our application. And I can say, it is very good at this. Finding the stats, pattern out of log is very easy. You can run multiple queries job on a single application log. You can monitor job running on your logs like you can kill them, can stop particular job. It's support of sql like queries on logs is just amazing.

Cons

This is a great tool, there is no disadvantage of this product but just mention you need a bit of learning to use it's all the functionality.

Best thing for monitoring application

good log monitoring tool

Pros

We are using this tool for monitoring our services log. It is easy to monitor the data using this. For each service, you can configure which log file should be shown on the UI(web). On UI, it provides lot of features like finding pattern in logs, doing analysis and generating reports and much more.

Cons

Learning is slow. Initially, it takes time to understand the reports and pattern it finds out of the log. But it's worth learning it.

Great place to see all my data

Pros

It allows me to seamlessly collect and visualize all my data. Provides a greater level of insights which were not visible in custom solutions before using Splunk

Cons

Sometimes it can be overwhelming to understand all the feature sets, it is not so clearly defined, it might help to have the documentation handy before using.

Easy to understand if you a technical outlook

The inbound and outbound data on our network traffic is outstanding. You can customize this logs to your benefit and creating dashboards on this is very simple

Pros

What I most like about Splunk is that it assists me in creating dashboards for my teams and other teams to verify the validity of our incoming and outbound network traffic.

Cons

Learning the syntax searches about it seems to very difficult and there aren't really any training guides or help on their website that I've found that assist very well with it.

July 2018

Software is fantastic once you get it fed the data. Setup can be a bear.

Software saves a great deal of time tracking down errors and issues in the network. Was able to spot a security issue using the software we might never have even noticed otherwise.

Pros

Fast consolidation of disparate logs in an easy to search way for troubleshooting. I can find problems within my organization very quickly. Sales team was very responsive in getting me a trial license to estimate my needs.

Cons

Set up takes some time and planning. The Licensing scheme can be pretty expensive and until you've got it up and running it can be hard to estimate how much license you need.

Easy way to review multiple log files and check for errors

Better visibility of application errors

Pros

Very useful for combining log files from multiple sources and setting up predefined reports to check for errors.

Cons

Free version of splunk light doesn't allow automatic notification by email of log errors. However as I have paid nothing I can't complain too much!

Splunk is great for finding things in server logs

Pros

The server logs are all stored in the same location and you can easy subdivide them by application. So different servers or processes or whatever can be in different buckets. This makes troubleshooting easier.

Cons

Sometimes depending on far back you are trying to go the product can be a little sluggish. Beyond that nothing.

Splunk is a wealth of information.

Pros

Splunk gathers a ton of information. It detects just about anything you want to know when it is configured.

Cons

Creating reports that will display the information you need is challenging and the output format could be improved upon.
