Yo, I am telling you, dog, you need to Splunk IT!

After being extremely inspired by all you die-hard Splunk fans out there, I decided to lay down some high-tech “geeky” rhymes over some old familiar classic rock riffs, including Queen’s “We Will Rock You”, Rush’s “Tom Saywer”, and AC/DC’s “Back In Black”. So…


Yo, dog, turn up da bass and check it….Maverick is in da hayouse!

Here are the sick lyrics, dog!

Splunk IT (a rap by Eric “Maverick�? Garner)
Copyright © 2007, Garner. All rights reserved.

We got all kinds of issues occurring in the system
They’ve always been there, but I guess we just missed ‘em
We need Splunk to help troubleshoot it
We got Red Hat 3.0, so we won’t have to chroot it

Yo, we got hundreds of servers in multiple locations
And the IT folks are venting all their frustrations
Telling me that grep is a bottleneck
We need something better, we need to Splunk IT

Oooooohhhh We need to Splunk IT
Yo, Yo, I’m telling you, dog, we need to Splunk IT
Oooooohhhh We need to Splunk IT
(Word to your mother)

Splunk makes life a hellavalot easier
Everything else just makes life cheesier
Yo, we gotta stay within our SLA
So we DL’d Splunk and installed it today

It’s exactly what we need and it absolutely
Takes the S-to-the-H out of the I-to-the-T
So now we’re gonna go to our CFO
And request a PO because we need to Splunk IT

Ooooooohhh We need to Splunk IT
Yo, I’m telling you, dog, we need to Splunk IT
Oooooohhh, We need to Splunk IT
Splunk IT, Boy!

So, if you can’t afford to wait, or hesitate
Or, if you need to comply with a strict mandate
Or cut your cost while increasing visibility
Or beef up all your network security
Or manage your transactions without a doubt
Or search in real-time to figure it out
Or keep your apps available to public
Then what you need to do is S-S-S-S-Splunk IT

Ooooooohhh You need to Splunk IT
Yo, yo, I’m telling you, dog, you need to Splunk IT
Ooooooohhh You need to Splunk IT
What are you waiting for, beeoooottcccchhhh?!
