Preface

Splunk is a powerful tool for collecting, storing, alerting, reporting, and studying machine data. This machine data usually comes from server logs, but it could also be collected from other sources. Splunk is by far the most flexible and scalable solution available to tackle the huge problem of making machine data useful.

The goal of this book is to serve as an organized and curated guide to Splunk 4.3.

My goal is to present what is needed for an effective implementation of Splunk in as concise and useful a manner as possible.
