Operational, security and economic insights across your AWS environment
The Splunk App for AWS helps you gain end-to-end visibility across your AWS environment, helping you move your mission-critical workloads to AWS with agility, security and confidence. The Splunk App for AWS, included in Splunk Insights for AWS Cloud Monitoring, provides users with dashboards, visualizations and alerts right out of the box.
The Splunk App for AWS offers a rich set of pre-built dashboards and reports to analyze and visualize data from numerous AWS services—including AWS CloudTrail, AWS Config, AWS Config Rules, Amazon Inspector, Amazon RDS, Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon VPC Flow Logs, Amazon S3, Amazon EC2, Amazon CloudFront, Amazon EBS, Amazon ELB and AWS Billing—all from a single, free app.
- Enhance security through visibility into all activity in your AWS account.
- Help ensure adherence to security and compliance standards with a full audit trail.
- Leverage machine learning for proactive insights, recommendations and anomaly detection
- Optimize AWS costs with an in-depth view of used/unused resources, cost by account and cost by service
Splunk’s AWS cost management and optimization capabilities begin with your current and historical AWS instance inventory and extend into an in-depth view of used/ unused resource cost, cost by account, and cost by service. Interactive capacity and budget planning dashboards allow you to properly assess cost versus budget over time.
Comprehensive security dashboards allow customers to view AWS audit activity, unauthorized users, key-pair and security group violations, VPC traffic source, out-of-band instance provisioning, security assessment findings, compliance checks, and AWS instance changes.
Visualize Current AWS Deployment
Splunk’s patent-pending topology view gives a graphical representation of your current AWS deployment. It allows you to view the topology and resource relationships by account, region, VPC, tag and time. This capability also allows you to playback how the environment was built and adds interactive layers of insight for each AWS element.
Analyze with Interactive Timelines
Splunk’s Resource Timeline view allows you to compare and correlate AWS Cloudwatch, CloudTrail, Config Rules and Inspector events in an interactive time-series ribbon. By analyzing events from a holistic view, you can dramatically accelerate time to insights and speed of issue resolution.
Machine Learning Insights
Dashboards leveraging the Splunk Machine Learning Toolkit provide additional insight and recommendation capabilities for Reserved Instance cost optimization, EC2 sizing, ELB health, Security Group orphans and Elastic IPs inactivity. Anomaly detection has also been applied across security and billing data.
Visualize Usage Metrics
Comprehensive AWS Operations dashboards allow customers to view EC2 instance utilization metrics, EBS footprint and usage details, S3 traffic volume, VPC traffic flow, ELB latency, Lambda activity and CloudFront CDN latency. Visualizations allow for both holistic views (by account, region, tag and time) and individual instance layers, down to the raw search and original metrics.
