Last week was quite an eventful one at Splunk—"Cloud First" won the Halloween costume contest (with a close second by an uncanny "Eleven"), and just days later a cutthroat stein-holding contest took place in the courtyard for a belated Splunktoberfest. Needless to say, everyone has made a full recovery from .conf2017.
While everyone was away in Washington, DC for that week in September, I spent most of the lonely days sitting in the deserted office staring at a decal of my coworker riding a flying elephant and listening to Debussy on loop. As though in a trance, I embarked on a mission to revive the long-lost Smart AnSwerS blog series started by Patrick Pablo, which resumes now after a 10-month hiatus.

Auto-clearing alerts for log sources that begin sending logs again after x-seconds
cemiam had an alert for log sources that ceased log activity for a period of time and wanted to clear alerts automatically for log sources that started up again after 300 seconds. cemiam thought an inputlookup command might work, but couldn’t find the documentation on it and asked the Answers community for help. SplunkTrust member jkat54 came to the rescue with his add-on “TA-Webtools," completely updating the app to support cemiam’s use case. Way to go, jkat54!
How can I apply TensorFlow deep learning algorithms to data within Splunk for credit card fraud?
akinobafemi wanted to know how he could apply deep learning algorithms to data within Splunk, providing a link to an example data set. Though gesman [Splunk] pointed out that Splunk does not have direct integration with TensorFlow, he explained how akinobafemi could access Splunk datasets within the deep learning solution by leveraging the Splunk API or Splunk SDK.
