Quotes From Members Comparing Splunk vs. Wavefront

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pricing and Cost Advice
I have no opinion on pricing.It is possible to use a developer's license, which is up to 10GB per day of volume traffic, which is usually enough for most use cases.Free Splunk license for PoCs on personal machines and the ability to scale the PoC to an enterprise level app.It can be expensive, especially the licensing costs. However, there is added value in what it can do, not just log aggregation.Splunk is a bit pricier, but the benefits and ROI are huge.It is a pretty high cost solution, but if your organization has the funds, it can bring many benefits.Personnel costs are saved by not having to involve the domain developers from multiple teams when tracing a problem that spans multiple platforms.Truly evaluate the data you want to ingest and go slow. Pulling in data that can provide no use to your mission only wastes data against your license.
