Simply point Splunk Enterprise at your data and intuitive interfaces guide you through previewing, onboarding and preparing your data, making it more useful for further search and analysis.
Because the structure and schema are applied only at search time you can collect & analyze the data without limitation.

Search and Investigate

Whether you’re responsible for running, securing and auditing IT, developing applications or providing analytics to the business, search is the starting point for discovering a new world of possibilities from your data.
Search using specific terms or expressions and powerful statistical and reporting commands. Correlate events across multiple data sources to reveal new insights. Automatically detect patterns across massive sets of data. Zoom in and out using a visual timeline to spot trends and spikes. Drill down into results and eliminate noise to find the needle in the haystack. Respond to important events, as they occur, in real time.

Correlate and Analyze

Splunk makes it easy to find relationships between events or activities. Correlate based on time, location, or custom search results. Use the Transaction command to identify related events as a transaction or session and investigate failed transactions.
Let the Event Pattern Detection command automatically find common or rare patterns in your bid data. Enable users to discover and share additional insights with the point-and-click ease of the unique Pivot interface.

Visualize and Report

Visualize trends and characteristics in custom dashboards and reports suited to any business, operational, or security need. Analyze further with chart overlays, and pan and zoom controls. Predictive visualizations let you forecast highs and lows, plan system resources, and anticipate workloads.

You can also personalize dashboards and reports for anyone, share them as PDFs or CSV reports, or embed them into other applications.

Monitor and Alert

Turn searches into real-time alerts and automatically trigger notifications via email or RSS; then execute remedial actions, send an SNMP trap or generate a trouble ticket.

Alerts can be generated based on a variety of thresholds, trend based conditions and other complex criteria. Gain additional information at the time of the alert to assist with faster root cause analysis and problem resolution.
