Description

Today there are more devices generating data than ever before, but making sense of this data is nearly impossible. In this course, Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk, you'll learn foundational knowledge of/gain the ability to utilize Splunk to analyze your devices both in and outside of the data center. First, you will learn how to set up your own Splunk development environment. Next, you'll learn to use Splunk forwarders to send data back to your Splunk development environment. Finally, you'll learn how to move data from Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) into Splunk. When you're finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Splunk needed to analyze your machine data.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Thomas Henson, and welcome to my course, Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk. I'm a big data evangelist and Pluralsight author. Most of my time is spent in a data center helping customers learn how to use HADOOP for their data. Splunk has been called the easy button for machine data, and has about 12, 000 customer worldwide who are all analyzing machine data and unstructured data with Splunk. In this course, we're going to dive into Splunk to learn the basics. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include, setting up your first Splunk development environment, learning to write Splunk queries with their SPL language, downloading applications from the Splunkbase, and then integrating those into your own environment, and running Splunk on Hadoop with Hunk. That's right, I'm going to show you how to integrate data from your Hadoop environment into your Splunk environment. By the end of this course, you'll know the basics on Splunk and how to analyze machine data in your Splunk environment, also you'll be able to identify new data points in your organizations that can be analyzed with Splunk, whether it be an IT security, DevOps, or even business analytics. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Splunk with Analyzing Machine Data Splunk course, here at Pluralsight.
