Splunk Review

This solution has an ability to do a quick search and immediately stop an incident from happening.

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case for Splunk is for log file visualization and monitoring alert management.

How has it helped my organization?

The way this solution has improved our organization is by its ability to do a quick search and immediately stop an incident from happening.

What is most valuable?

The auto-notification abilities are a huge benefit for us.

What needs improvement?

After a crash, the product takes a while to recover.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sometimes we have had instances when it will not run for a couple of days. There is room for improvement here.

What was our ROI?

There are lots of use cases and features that make Splunk a good choice for us.

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

I have no opinion on the pricing of the product. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We considered Datadog and Zabbix. In comparison to those options, Splunk has virtual visualization. Furthermore, it can be a host on our environment. Typically, we cannot deploy SaaS on our environment, but with Splunk, we can. 

What other advice do I have?

When Splunk failed, it took time to recover. We had to recover it from a snapshot. It took a couple of days, and it was as if it had crashed.  But, the instance was resolved.
