PRODUCT FEATURE DETAILS

Splunk® Enterprise

Dashboards and Visualizations

Customized dashboards and data visualizations give voice to your data to create impactful narratives that drive action.
VISUALIZATIONS

Show the beauty in your data

Choose from a wide range of charts and other visualizations to tell a data story that is compelling and actionable. Intuitive and interactive tools make sense of complex data, empowering you to identify issues and opportunities.

Dashboards

Tell a story with your visualizations

Dashboards integrate charts, reports and re-usable panels to display a comprehensive data story. Build and personalize dashboards to display the most relevant information for different audiences and use cases. Additionally, use the same data and tailor it specifically for management, business and security analysts, auditors, developers, and operations teams to help them act fast.

Monitoring and Alerting

Monitoring

Greater visibility into your operations

Continuous monitoring of events, conditions, and critical KPIs helps keep your operations running smoothly. With scheduled searches you can create real-time dashboards and visualizations that keep your team and management informed. Out-of-the box monitoring dashboards for common IT, security, and application environments are also available in the Splunkbase app store.

ALERTING

Get your critical alerts in real-time

Alerts can signal critical events and impending conditions in real-time. Splunk's custom alert actions feature makes it simple to automatically kickoff subsequent action (think: sending emails and executing remediation scripts) when an alert is triggered. Further, these custom alerts can be set to varying levels of granularity based on a variety of conditions (e.g. data thresholds, trend-based conditions, and behavorial pattern recognition, like abandoned shopping carts, brute force attacks, and fraud scenarios).

Reporting

Reports can be created in real time, scheduled to run at any interval and used in your dashboards. They can also be saved and shared in secure, read-only formats like PDFs via ODBC.

Metrics

Metrics

The small data type with an outsized performance boost

Splunk allows for complete utilization of metrics data to boost its already-fast performance by at least 2000X over previous releases (before version 7.0). And now with Metrics Workspace, you don't need to know SPL to browse, analyze and transform large (or small) metrics data sets. Accelerate time-to-insight and time-to-action with easy-to-use, visual data analysis capabilities.

Logs to Metrics. Metrics data are numerical data points captured over time that can be compressed, stored, processed and retrieved more efficiently than logs. Scale your ability to use this data type by converting your logs into metrics.

Metrics Workspace. The Metrics Workspace is a new visual analytics interface within the Search and Reporting app that provides Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud customers (release 7.1 and beyond) a GUI-based way to explore their metrics data—from disk space, to application response times, to temperature readings in IoT devices—without requiring SPL. It also enables the creation of sophisticated, metrics-focused alerts and dashboards.

We chose Splunk to help us monitor and manage our mobile battery systems in the field...Now we can proactively maintain our battery systems on customer sites which enables us to improve the overall customer experience.

Scale and Manageability

SmartStore

Bold next-generation architecture

SmartStore maximizes data management flexibility while maintaining search performance by allowing compute (CPUs) and data storage to be independently scaled up or down based on business demands. It automatically evaluates users’ data access patterns via an application-aware cache and places actively accessed data in local storage for real-time analytics and unused/inactive data in lower-cost, remote storage.

This maximizes scalability and data availability by expanding data retention capabilities while significantly lowering cost of ownership and increasing flexibility with built-in applications and an index-aware cache. Additionally, it simplifies indexer maintenance as all data gets pushed to remote storage to assist with patching, upgrading or replacing indexes without impacting data integrity.

Splunk Monitoring Console

Operational visibility for your on-prem lifestyle

The Splunk Monitoring Console for Splunk Enterprise provides a complete system and feature monitoring interface — including topology views and alerting of system status and health — for all components of on-premises deployments. The console creates a single interface to view the status, performance, capacity and interconnectivity of these components, allowing the admin to optimize their system.

Performance

Continued advancements in Splunk Enterprise speed

Splunk's Workload Management feature provides a policy-based mechanism that enables you to reserve system resources (e.g. CPU and memory) for ingestion and search workloads based on your organization’s priorities. This enables administrators to classify workloads into different groups and then reserve system resources for higher-priority workload groups.

Integrations

Enterprise Integrations

Embed everywhere and bring you workstreams together

Embed Splunk reports in any application or use our ODBC integrations to access Splunk data in applications such as Microsoft Excel or Tableau. And with Splunk alerts, you can automatically trigger actions in ticketing or other task assignment systems. Additionally, rich SDKs let your team integrate Splunk data and functionality in ways we may not have even thought of yet.

 

User Auth

A secure, transportable identity system

Splunk Enterprise supports SAML integration for single sign-on through most popular identity providers like Okta, PingFederate, Azure AD, CA SiteMinder, OneLogin and Optimal IdM. Splunk Enterprise can also integrate with other authentication systems, including LDAP, Active Directory, and e-Directory.

Storage Optimization

Keep it in Splunk or export it out

Data retention costs are a significant part of your analytics budget, so Splunk Enterprise offers two options to reduce historical data storage costs by up to 80 percent while retaining Splunk search capabilities. Keep historical data within Splunk and reduce the data footprint of seldom-analyzed, cold data or roll your data to an existing Hadoop or Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) data lake.

Splunk Training is the place for coursework on specific Splunk topics and learning paths to take you from novice to power user. Go from investigative keyword searches to creating rich reports and visualizations from scratch. Learning paths range from topics focusing on end users to those focused on administering Splunk Enterprise, including user provisioning, data source inputs and system configurations.

Pricing

Contrary to popular belief, Lor em Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical. LOL

Buy any index volume. Splunk offers volume pricing discounts—the more you ingest, the less you pay per GB of ingested data.

Splunk Enterprise software is priced by how much data you send into your Splunk installation in a day. We recommend that you purchase a license size that aligns with the maximum amount of data you expect to send to Splunk in one day. With this pricing model, you pay once to index the data and then can perform unlimited searches against that data, as well as store it for as long as you like.

Licensing

Splunk offers Perpetual and Term licenses. A Perpetual License is a one-time license fee that grants you indefinite use of Splunk Enterprise. A Term License is for a specific time period—usually a year—during which you are allowed to access and use Splunk Enterprise.
