Splunk for Operating Systems

Gain actionable insight across your physical and virtualized systems

Often system performance can impact applications and their users, especially within today's distributed IT infrastructures. Too many physical and virtual machines bring management headaches, including worries that resources are either over- or under-utilized.

Using Splunk you can meet these monitoring and management challenges. Splunk lets you:

  • Proactively prevent and manage performance problems, capacity bottlenecks, unexpected events, changes and security risks across multiple flavors of Windows and Linux operating systems
  • Link user or application-related issues to events in the underlying physical, virtual or hybrid infrastructure tiers for 360° visibility
  • Trend, analyze and report on system resource usage, utilization, response times and other metrics for optimum user experience, resource allocation and change management


Managing large-scale environments can be difficult. Keeping track of heterogeneous applications and operating systems running on physical or virtual environments is a daunting task. With its ability to index, analyze and report on machine data from your entire infrastructure, Splunk software provides a central view across your systems. This gives your IT administrators greater control and visibility over all the resources in the environment.
