Splunk Customer Service and Technical Support

Engineering Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
We do deal with technical support on an ongoing basis. They can definitely do better from a technical point of view. Their only purpose working onsite is to make sure that our massive set of Splunk clusters are online, and the clusters are tuned well enough to work well. We would expect the technical support people onsite to be subject-matter experts of Splunk. We have seen in a few areas where we have been left wanting more, wherein some of our engineers happen to know more than them in terms of some of the query optimizations, etc. This is where we think there is a fair amount of improvement that can be done.

Tony Fabrikant
CTO at IHS Markit
Our internal tools team did work with the Splunk support team extensively. I was not directly involved, but from my point of view, they were able to fix and resolve issues within a day or less, so they have been okay View full review »

Gavan McLaughlin
Application Engineer at Expedia
I don't engage with the support directly. Another member of my team does. Any time that we have needed support, he hasn't had an issue opening a ticket and receiving the help that he needs. View full review »
Gregg Woodcock
Consultant at Splunxter, Inc.
It used to be great (but perhaps that was because my employer at the time was a key prospect in a vertical where Splunk had no customers) but Splunk support is definitely a victim of Splunk's explosive growth. The first tier support is as bad as it is most places and getting worse all the time. If you KNOW your problem is not run of the mill, ask for escalation immediately. Also the clock on the case does not start until somebody adds a note to the case so always call in and ask if they got your diag file (always attach a diag) and the person who answers will have to add a note to the case which will start the clock.

Michael Kaericher
Application Engineer at Securian Financial Group
Most of my interaction is with the user community, which is how Splunk wants it. When I need help, that community is very hit or miss. View full review »
Yosef Tavin
Devops Engineer at Moovit
Their support is pretty good, but not amazing. Although we have our own in-house Splunk expert who worked for Splunk themselves for a few years, we do not really need external support that much. We basically use them for licensing stuff. The forums are pretty thorough, so technically we have not had much need for support. View full review »

For us, technical support has been good. Splunk has good documentation and it is really easy to work with Splunk and the Splunk community. View full review »

It has been a weak point, but has improved over the years. It can be tough to get a hold of somebody depending on the complexity of the issue. View full review »

Madison Moss
Splunk Architect at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
On the technical side, it would be nice to see aspects of the recent acquisition of Phantom make it into the core Splunk Enterprise, not just become a part of the premium Enterprise Security. View full review »
