  • IT Ops: Getting the Most Out of Splunk for Infrastructure Monitoring - From Insights to Enterprise

  • Abstract: System downtime results in poor customer experience and millions of dollars in lost revenue annually for companies in nearly every industry. In many cases, the underlying infrastructure — servers, containers and even the cloud environment — are the cause of the problem. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for IT operations and SRE teams to quickly and easily spot or predict the source of the problem in their infrastructure. They need a consolidated view across the infrastructure stack to pinpoint which layer is causing the issue. Splunk captures complex interactions between the infrastructure and application components, making it easy to perform root-cause analysis. With Splunk, customers can integrate all data sources into a searchable repository to easily troubleshoot and monitor their environment. Learn how to get started with Splunk software for infrastructure monitoring to resolve application problems faster, reduce downtime and increase customer satisfaction. Hear how Splunk customers reduce mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR), spending less time pointing fingers so that they can better identify the problem, fix it and move forward.

  • Security: Turning Security Use Cases Into SPL

  • Abstract: Have you ever stared at the search bar while deciding the best way to query Splunk for answers? Let's face it, we've all been there. The pressure gets even more intense when you are building security use cases, hunting for threat actors and meeting compliance requirements to protect your organization from hackers. Make a mistake and you could create an unnecessary performance penalty in your environment. Even worse, accidentally miss the mark on your intended detection goal and your threats could go undetected. Splunk Professional Services will demonstrate for you common tried and tested SPL patterns that we use in building security use cases. We will also do a deep dive on the tstats command, and show you tips and tricks on how to effectively utilize data model acceleration summaries in your searches. Utilizing these pointers, you will have SPL patterns to choose from and apply to various use cases that also perform accurately and efficiently.
