PRODUCT FEATURE DETAILS

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring Features

Analytics In-Flight

Real-Time Streaming Analytics

Unlike traditional systems that use a slow batch model to run analytics on metric time series, Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring applies analytics on metrics in-flight using a streaming pub/sub bus. When there is downtime, every second counts. Only a streaming architecture can ingest, analyze and alert quickly enough to keep small issues from impacting your customers in a big way.

Full Stack Observability

Infrastructure and application performance are interdependent. To see the full picture, Splunk provides seamless correlation between cloud infrastructure and the microservices running on top of it. If your application acts out because of memory leakage, a noisy neighbor container or any other infrastructure-related issue, Splunk will let you know. To complete the picture, in-context access to Splunk logs and events enable deeper troubleshooting and root cause analysis.

Avoid Vendor Lock-In

Freedom is important. Open, flexible data collection and 200+ integrations expedites time-to-value and let’s you connect with the services of your choice.

Monitor in minutes without complex configurations

Splunk Smart Agent is a lightweight, open-source- based agent for Linux and Windows with automated discovery of services, running on hosts and dynamic configuration of data collection plugins. Simple to set up, so you can get your monitoring service up and running quickly.

Visualize all infrastructure, apps, and services in one place

Splunk supplies hundreds of ready to use integrations with popular OSS, cloud infrastructure and services. Integrations automatically pull standard metrics from the services and feed them into pre-built dashboards for rapid visualization. Integrations go beyond just ingesting data to incident response systems, like Splunk On-Call for rapid issue resolution.

Cloud Agnostic Monitoring

Splunk ingests metrics and metadata with integrations into all of the popular cloud providers and their services (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.) for fast time to value without the need to manage agents or plugins.

Visibility for Serverless Functions

Splunk monitors the most popular FaaS services (AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions) with Function Wrappers that provide metrics on total invocations, errors, durations, etc. in seconds.

Real-Time Interactive Visualizations

High-definition, easy-to-use dashboards let you interact with all of your data in real-time.

Customizable Charts and Dashboards

Get started right away. Build real-time, high-resolution dashboards representing your entire cloud environment with just a few clicks. Customize visualization by cloning and editing from out-of-the-box, curated dashboards to highlight exactly what matters most.

Automate Dashboard Creation

Adopt monitoring-as-code by automatically building dashboards with Splunk APIs and SignalFlow Analytics Language.

Sophisticated Analytics Functions

Go beyond raw metric data and basic functions. Use over 20 sophisticated analytics functions to gain deeper understanding of patterns and trends.

Improve Team Collaboration

Effortlessly share charts or dashboards across your teams while maintaining granular access controls. Mirrored dashboards help maintain important consistency across the organization.

Alerting Built for Action

Proactively alert on what matters to dramatically reduce mean-time-to-detect (MTTR)

Problem Detection with a Brain

With built-in data science, Splunk instantly and accurately alerts on dynamic thresholds, multiple conditions, and complex rules to dramatically reduce MTTR. Splunk also enables predictive analysis, high cardinality slice and dice, and rich analysis of business metrics.

Get Critical Alerts Instantly

Alert on patterns and identify anomalies in seconds. Stop wasting time with legacy batch-based monitoring tools that can result in lengthy downtime or persistent performance issues.

Reduce Alert Storms with Adaptive Alert Conditions

Point and click alert conditions with dynamic thresholds and automatic baselining that leverages data science instead of static thresholds for no-noise alerts. Preview these alerts to simulate and fine-tune.

Best-in-class Kubernetes Monitoring

The most advanced solution to monitor and operate Kubernetes environments

Cloud Cost Optimizer

Reduce CapEx with a comprehensive view of your entire cloud infrastructure costs and capacity to optimize spend.

Integration with CI/CD Tools

Enable your DevOps teams to perform frequent code pushes with integrations into the CI/CD toolchain (Jenkins, Ansible, ZooKeeper, etc.)

[Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring] has allowed us to funnel all of our metrics into one platform, giving the team a single pane of glass for monitoring the health of our services in real time. This visibility allows us to get in and fix issues before they have a downstream effect for the officers using the Mark43 platform.
