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.

Hi everyone, my name is Thomas Henson and welcome to my course Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk. I am a Big Data Evangelist and Pluralsight Author. Most of my time is spent in the data center helping customers learn to use Hadoop for their data. Splunk has been called the easy button for machine data and has about 12,000 customers worldwide. These customers are all analyzing machine data and unstructured data with Splunk.

In this course, we are going to dive into Splunk to learn the basics. Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
1. Setting up your first Splunk development environment
2. Learning to write Splunk queries with their SPL language
3. Downloading application from Splunkbase and using them in your own environment
4. Running Splunk on Hadoop with Hunk

That’s right I will show you how to integrate data from Hadoop into your own Splunk environment.

By the end this course, you’ll know the basics on Splunk and be able to analyze machine data in your splunk environment. You will also be able to identify new data points in your organization that you can analyze with Splunk. Whether it be in Security, DevOps, or Business Analytics.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Splunk with the Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk course, at Pluralsight.
