SplunkTalk – #30 – The big three zero

This week brings our 30th episode of SplunkTalk. On this week’s episode, Jeff Blake, Michael Wilde (the Splunk Ninja), and epic-dude Maverick Garner cover questions on gathering events over WMI from “non-domain connected” workgroup machines, versions of forwarders vs. the indexer and dealing with mapped drives and volumes in Windows. Funny stuff as always and some sneak peak of future Splunk developments.
