Splunk Ties into Management Workflow

Michael Vizard

Splunk has expanded the management functionality surrounding its namesake management tool that leverages search engine technology to make it easier to discover issues and anomalies across a range of IT infrastructure systems.

Version 4.1 of Splunk now includes the ability to analyze live streaming IT events before that information is indexed by the Splunk search engine, expanded drill down utilities for analyzing systems management data, the ability to create workflows based on specific events, and the ability to more easily recognize patterns in various IT events.

According to Sanjay Mehta, Splunk director of product marketing, customers have been asking Splunk to make it easier to integrate Splunk's approach to systems management into a continuous, real-time process for monitoring IT systems, as opposed to simply invoking Splunk when they become aware of a problem.

Other new features in Splunk 4.1 include the ability to generate PDF files based on Splunk reports and support fo single sign-on tools that make it easier to inlcude Splunk in a larger portfolio of systems management tools.
