Splunk Review

Fast availability of operational data spread across several servers is nice, but the MES is a complex system.


What is most valuable?

What Splunk calls operational intelligence: fast availability of operational data spread across several servers to prevent or react faster to outages or performance decreases.

How has it helped my organization?

MES is a complex and very critical distributed system here. Production WIP is directly connected to it and ICT is required to provide a continuous availability and very stable performance (line production has a costant speed, software cannot slowdown). Collect operational data from hardware, middleware and application software can potentially improve ICT proactive and reactive tasks.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've ever used it, just studied it.

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

We also use a traditional monitor, and Microsoft SCOM.

What was our ROI?

Every stop or slowdown of the production line means lost of money, e.g. 30% reduction when compared to the current baseline.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Every stop or slowdown of the production line means lost of money, e.g. 30% of reduction compare to the current baseline.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?
