LENGTH: 8 Hours (1 day)
This course is designed for developers responsible for debugging their own applications, and for SREs responsible for troubleshooting performance issues. The Splunk Log Observer is built primarily for DevOps teams working on applications built on modern tech stacks (containerized micro-services). However, the course it can be taken by anyone who wants to view recent log data in a no-code environment. This 1-virtual-day course describes how to use the tool to work with log data using the no-code user interface. You will learn to create, save, and share search filters; and to investigate the shape of your log data. You will analyze logs with aggregation functions and group by rules. And you will create rules to manipulate incoming data, as well as to generate synthetic metrics from log data. All concepts are taught using lectures and scenario-based hands-on activities.
