Comments: We've used the software to detect layer 7 attacks, unearth issues we didn't realize were happening and gives us end to end insight into our stack.

Pros: The system is highly intuitive to use. It is faster than other solutions I've used on the market and has a huge library of 3rd party plugins to get more from the system. It is easy to create scheduled searches, dashboards, reports etc. but there are a number of additional plugins (at an extra cost) to help with security, single pane of glass and metric collection.

Cons: It offers challenges for a decentralized working model. Where Splunk is centrally managed, it is easy to ensure that best practices are maintained. Where the system is opened up for an entire department to utilize and on-board their logs, it becomes more difficult. However, with some creative thinking and good process, this issue can be overcome.

Good enterprise system for security SIEM, monitoring and data aggregation and visualizations.

Comments: I've used Splunk for over 8 years and it is my go-to SIEM. There are tons of apps and integrations. Good for correlation and leveraging the Common Information Model will make your life much happier.

Pros: The power of it. It's a very good tool that does amazing things. Nothing comes close to it. We used it for full view of data, full transaction. Security appliance consolidation.

Cons: There is a learning curve and a new language you have to learn, but it's intuitive and you can pick it up pretty quickly.

Everything on every point is under your control.

Comments: Splunk Enterpise is the best security information and event management tool ever. It allows you to see far most end point of your system, everything stays under control.

Pros: The fature of scrpint/coding your own app inside the Splunk is very useful. I developed a lot of dashboards for our infrastructure, customized alarms, email notfications helps you to see what is happening in the system. It definetely deserves the money our company have had paid.

Cons: When you have a real big infrastructure, Splunk user interface gets a bit slow. Waiting for search results a bit annoying.

Comments: We are using extensively to monitor production jobs and production server. We have setup splunk Jobs to continuously monitor space , files on our server. Automatic emails are triggered if space is not available as expected. This helps to take proactive action and avoid production failures. Splunk is also used to monitor files received from various sources. Our jobs requires multiple files to run the process. We have setup splunk jobs to monitor the files and if any file is not available we are alerted using emails

Pros: Various insights are derived from otherwise neglected system and process logs. Library of functions is readily available to read the logs , perform string operations and scan the file.
Information can be represented using numerous charts , bars and graphs. Very useful in production monitoring and alerting using email option

Cons: I feel debugging is difficult. drop down or drag and drop functions should be made available because it's difficult to keep track and remember syntax of functions and it's usage.
