Zoom in and out on timelines to automatically reveal trends, spikes and patterns and click to drill down into search results.
Splunk makes it easy to find relationship between events and activities. Correlate based on time, location, or custom search results. Use the Transaction command to identify related events such as a transaction or session and investigate failed transactions. Let the Event Pattern Detection command automatically find common or rare patterns.
Visualize trends and characteristics in custom dashboards and reports across all IT layers. Analyze further with chart overlay and pan-and-zoom controls. Derive baselines and alerts on threshold violations. You can personalize dashboards and reports for anyone or share them as PDFs.
Turn searches into real-time alerts and automatically trigger notifications via email or RSS; then execute remedial actions, send an SNMP trap or generate a trouble ticket.
