Splunk MINT: A Complete Introduction

Splunk MINT was an application designed to help IT organizations gain insights into the availability, usage, and performance of their company’s mobile apps. With the MINT app and the Splunk MINT SDK, admins and app developers gained the capability to measure and detect application crashes, performance issues, and usage.

Splunk MINT has been retired and its capabilities have been replaced by Splunk Real User Monitoring.

If you were thinking about trying Splunk MINT, instead you can now get end-to-end visibility with Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM) as part of the Splunk Observability Cloud.
