"I assume that the pricing is reasonable, because if it was too costly, there are other alternatives.""We have seen ROI and improvements as we have continued to use the product, but they are more reactive.""Splunk is not free.""It would be nice if the pricing were cheaper. However, we did purchase it.""We have had a reduction in the time it takes to resolve issues and correlate what has failed.""The pricing seems good relative to the other vendors that we have had here. However, they need to find ways to be more flexible with the licensing and be able to deal with situations where we start generating more logs. Maybe having some controls in the Splunk interface to turn it off, so we don't have to change anything in our application.""Some of the insights that we have obtained as a part of using Splunk have greatly helped us in increasing our revenue in terms of selling our products.""I am not personally involved with the pricing of the solution."
