2nd NY Metro Splunk Users Group Meeting

The 2nd annual (hope to become quarterly) NY Splunk Users Group meeting was held yesterday at Tumblr headquarters with our host Mackenzie Kosut graciously allowing the group to use Tumblr’s meeting room for the meet-up. Splunkers Matty Settipane and Sean Blake were the guest speakers talking about large scale deployment.

In today’s Splunk architecture, the discussions are not just about indexers and search heads, but they also include search head pooling, deployment servers, job servers, external syslog collectors, cluster masters, roles, and inspecting searches for performance bottlenecks. If these topics are interesting to you, please contact fellow Splunk customers and Splunkers to form a discussion.

From the feedback we got, it looks like we’ll have another meeting in a few months. To follow the group, join it on LinkedIn. It’s called the NY Metro Splunk Users Group with Ricky Lee and Reed Kelly serving as group moderators.

Oh, the famous dog, Tommy Pom, made an appearance to the delight of the attendees.
