Splunk Review

Good integration, easy UI, and very stable and scalable


What is most valuable?

Its integration is most valuable. Its UI is also pretty much easy.

What needs improvement?

Its setup is a little bit complex for a distributed environment. 

Their support can also be better. If we raise a case with Splunk support and by any chance we missed to respond for more than a week, they usually close the case. Sometimes, it can take us more than a week to reply. In that case What they can do is they can send a followup mail before closing.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for a year now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable haven't encounter any glitches or bugs till now.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is very much scalable. I am acting as an admin, and we have more than a hundred users of this solution in our company. We use it on a regular basis. We currently don't have any plan to increase its usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate them an eight out of ten. Their response speed is okay, but if, by any chance, we miss the response for more than a week, they usually close the case. Sometimes, it can take us more than a week to reply.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This is the only solution that we have been using.

How was the initial setup?

Its setup is pretty much easy for standalone, but for a distributed environment, it is a little bit complex.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others, but it should meet their needs and architecture.

I would rate Splunk a nine out of ten.

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
