Splunk Stability

Engineering Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
On the cloud, we are pushing through less than half a petabyte of data. So far, it has been fairly stable because it runs on all the underlying AWS infrastructures. Therefore, we have had no issues at all. In terms of availability or outages that we've experienced, there haven't been any. We've been fairly happy with the overall landscape of how it works on AWS.

Stability has been great. I don't think we have ever had an outage from it. We don't do a lot of searching. If there is somewhere with problems, it will probably have to be with a lot of searches, and we don't have that. We don't have many developers searching every day. It is mostly when there is a problem, then we use it for diagnostics. So, we don't put a large search load on it. However, the reliability of it has been great. It hasn't been down for us at any point. View full review »

CTO at IHS Markit
It is pretty stable, though it has gone down from our usage. We do need to keep an eye on our query volumes. Right now, it is too easy for a user to write a query, run it, make it available in polling mode (real-time mode), and bring down the server. Some more safety alerting would help and be beneficial. We do have to educate developers on how to not blow it up. It is a little to easy to write an expensive query and overly stress the system. This could be improved. Overall, once you have people who know what they are doing, it is very stable. View full review »

Application Engineer at Expedia
We put a lot of trust in it. It has been pretty rock-solid outside of a couple of changes that we made. Upgrades sometimes don't always go smoothly, but otherwise the system performs, and operates. View full review »

It's been very stable for us. Most of our stress in not from Splunk, but from disk I/O, like input and output for the disk that you are writing logs to. We have had more issue with our own hardware than Splunk. You have to make sure if you're writing an enormous amount of data that you have your I/O sorted out beforehand. View full review »

Unfortunately, lately every release has a new memory leak. Be SURE to upgrade late and READ THE RELEASE NOTES, especially the "Known Issues" section. View full review »

Stability is perfect. It's a good product. The market right now is moving towards cloud. We will use cloud in our option strategy. One thing that Splunk does not have is a partner consulting base so Splunk depends heavily on its own consulting, which I think should not be there. They should promote more partners for consulting. In fact, their education program is also very costly for all partners. For example, if you want to get your guys certified it's really costly. Because they have a good solution, they're completely inflexible with pricing. I don't see a lot of enablement from Splunk. View full review »

Software Engineer at Tableau Software
It is always up when I need to search. I am probably not using it that much. I will maybe search a couple times a day for something specific, so I am not using it too much. I know plenty of the people who are doing a lot more for debugging, and who use it a lot all day. View full review »

We don't have any issues with it now. We had some issues in the past, but we chalked those up to user error. We didn't know what we were doing at first. View full review »
