Splunk is used for many different applications within our enterprise environments. It enables us to store, analyze, and track machine data and other information within our networks from a central application. Learning how to search for your data efficiently within Splunk will help you realize its potential. In this course, Generating Tailored Searches in Splunk, you will learn the skills needed to perform advanced searches that allow you to quickly find the data that you’re looking for. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the knowledge to be able to sift through your massive amounts of data, filter it how you need, and generate visualizations to help clearly see what your data represents. Software required: Linux or Windows virtual machine with Splunk installed.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Joe Abraham, and welcome to my course, Generating Tailored Searches in Splunk. I am currently a network security consultant and Pluralsight author for both IT operations and security topics. Do you have massive amounts of data in your SIM indexes and don't know how to sift through it? Have you always wondered how to perform advanced searches in Splunk and create useful visualizations with it? Well, in this course, we're going to do just that. We will help you generate tailored searches so that you can identify, filter, and visualize the data that you have in a way that you need. Some of the major topics that we will cover include advanced searching techniques and commands, creating useful visualizations, and identifying and creating macro commands for efficiency. By the end of this course, you'll know how to use several search concepts within Splunk to find and display what you need. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Splunk and be able to work with it, as well as have familiarity with basic IT terminology, knowledge of machine data would help out as well. From here, you should feel comfortable diving further into the Splunk learning path at Pluralsight and learning more about both Splunk and the data that you can send to it through courses on building dashboards, alerts, knowledge objects, and much more. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about Splunk with the Generating Tailored Searches in Splunk course at Pluralsight.
