What is Splunk?

Splunk is a software that provides you with an engine that helps in monitoring, searching, analyzing, visualizing and which acts on large amounts of data. It is a wide application and it supports and works on versatile technologies. Splunk is an advanced technology which searches log files which are stored in a system. It also helps in operational intelligence. Splunk has many uses and it does not require any complicated databases, connectors or controls. It can also be used as a cloud application which is highly scalable and reliable.

Basically, it’s Google for log files! Beyond troubleshooting, you can use this search capability to build reports and dashboards to monitor performance, reliability, or other metrics across a whole collection of related servers and devices, and even create alerts to warn you by text or email when something is going wrong.

Determining the best DevOps tools for your team will require some experimentation, but the first step is having a clear understanding of how each will help you address your business needs and achieve your goals.
