Event Logs SuckRob Das, Splunk Co-founder, was on hand at Pivotal Labs on September 15 to present on the topic of “Semantic Logging with Splunk.” This is the concept of building intelligence into your applications via logging practices and then using Splunk as an analytics engine that allows you to slice and dice data and add reports and visualization tools. Semantic logging can be used to divine everything from tricky bugs and application performance to business metrics data that tell developers whether they’re maximizing revenue from customers or missing out on sales.
