Pros: The charts and visualizations that you can create in general have a good look and it has the minimum functionalities expected as a user (export, filtering, search, etc), I spent some time trying to understand the interface and functionalities but once I started to load some data and use the search I was able to see the capabilities of the product.

Cons: Splunk is easy to start going but difficult to master with so many features. The query language has many analytical features that requires some learning curve

Pros: It allows me to bring a lot of information into one friendly view. It's a great security audit tool.

Cons: It has limited functionality. It is a very memory intensive system. It does not integrate with Lennox.

Splunk has helped me troubleshoot client connectivity to our APs.

Pros: Splunk makes it easy to troubleshooting client connectivity. It also helps me understand if a client is continually roaming to other APs.

Cons: I wish that it was a little more cost effective. In some ways, Splunk has so many options that it can be confusing to know how to get the information you're looking for.

Pros: simple and easy

Cons: costly

Overall: We used Splunk as a 'google for our app logs'. It worked very well, the only problem was that our budget could afford only so much GBs of logs and every now and then we had to flush the logs.

Recommendations to other buyers: try and get a deal from the sales team

Comments: Splunk is nice tool to analyze the logs, visualize the transaction, creating auto alerts, creating Splunk¿s Search Processing Language (SPL) queries, creating dashboards. It is very powerful to analyze the logs. Splunk performance gets impacted if we search for data over a long period of time. License is bit costly.

Pros: Splunk provides a searchable and well indexed storage of application logs, which is what we primarily use to debug production issues. Apart from this, there are several features I love: creating real time alerts in the case of erroneous behaviour, creating dashboards to monitor the release of a new feature, extracting csvs from a set of relevant log events. All this and more is much of what keeps our business running.

Cons: I think that the error messages on unsuccessful jobs are too detailed for a user. If a job times out, it gives you a message which is a little difficult to understand.

Overall:
Splunk helps us with real time alerting, application monitoring, feature monitoring.

It saves a lot of time in helping us find the root cause of production issues.

The huge range of splunk operators helps us create meaningful visuals to communicate with the business.

Recommendations to other buyers: NO
