About this video

Splunk has evolved from a normal log monitoring tool to a de facto tool used in almost every enterprise, spanning from IT to security and even marketing.

This course will get you off to a steady start by helping you understand how to install Splunk and set up a sample machine data generator, called Eventgen. By learning how to create various reports, dashboards, and alerts, you’ll then be able to analyze and visualize your data with a completely new perspective. You’ll later explore how to model data for business users using Splunk's Pivot functionality. As you cover more chapters, you’ll get up to speed with testing Splunk's powerful HTTP Event Collector and send data to Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud. After covering core Splunk functionality, you'll gain insights into some real-world best practices for using this technology. Throughout this fully updated edition, you’ll also come across ’Tips from the Fez’, which are additional comments and best practice recommendations from a member of the SplunkTrust Community.

By the end of this course, you’ll know exactly how to use the many features of Splunk to your advantage and transform your machine data into resourceful insights that positively affect business decisions.
