Hunk Product Tour
Explore, Analyze and Visualize Data in Hadoop
Getting value out of a big data initiative doesn't have to be a science project. Imagine integrating the processes of data exploration, analysis and visualization into a single, fluid user experience designed to drive rapid insights from your data in Hadoop. Hunk™: Splunk Analytics for Hadoop makes this possible. With Hunk, ask and answer questions of raw data in Hadoop without having to define fixed schemas in Apache Hive. Based on years of experience building big data products deployed at thousands of Splunk customers, Hunk delivers insights from big data in Hadoop quickly, and without the complexity of alternative solutions. Hunk works on Apache Hadoop and most major Hadoop distributions including first-generation MapReduce and YARN.
Interactively Search on Raw Data in Hadoop
Hunk is built upon a schema-on-the-fly technology, which means that you don't need to know anything about the data in advance. Search results return with an automatic structure based on fields, keywords, patterns over time, top values and more. Even event breaking and timestamp extraction are done at search time.
When you run a query in Hunk, it streams back interim results immediately while the MapReduce job continues to run in the background. This delivers a faster, more interactive experience because you can pause and refine queries without having to wait for full MapReduce jobs to finish.
Empower business and IT teams to analyze raw data in Hadoop. Data Models describe relationships in the underlying raw data, making it more meaningful and usable. Quickly generate charts, visualizations and dashboards using the Pivot interface, without the need to master the Splunk Processing Language (SPL™). Drill down from anywhere in a chart to the underlying raw events or to another dashboard, form, view or external website. Save reports, integrate them into dashboards and view them all from your desktop or mobile device.
Custom Dashboards and Views
Business and technical colleagues can edit dashboards with a simple interface and change chart types on-the-fly with integrated charting controls. Hunk dashboards integrate multiple charts and views of your data in Hadoop to satisfy the needs of multiple business and IT stakeholders. Use the ODBC driver (beta) to integrate with third-party data visualization and business intelligence software. Role-based access controls protect sensitive data.
