Dallas Splunk Users Group – July 10th @ 6:00p CDT

On the second Tuesday of each month, Splunkers in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex area have been getting together on a regular basis to talk about all things Splunk. Seems the users are able to take advantage of spending just a couple hours with each other, trading notes about Splunk, helping each other solve problems with our Splunk deployments and configurations, and sharing a beer and pizza too.

Splunking Outside The Box @ .conf2012

Have you ever thought to yourself, "Wow! Splunk can do so many things! I wonder just how far I can go with it? How far can it really take me?" It's true. Your data may seem static from a literal perspective, but from a creative perspective, your data can take you places you never thought you could go. For example: - What if you could pick winning lottery numbers? - What if you could create an app that allows you to log human activity, not just machine activity? - What if you could easily normalize two or more different sets of data and then compare each of their distributions all on the same graph? Wow! Wouldn't your boss be impressed?! Come join me and the rest of the worldwide Splunkers and see just where your data can take you on your #datajourney of a lifetime @Splunk's users conference 2012.

Dallas Splunk Users Group – Dec 6, 2011 @ 6:00p

Last month I attended the very first Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex area Splunk users group and it was a great experience. I met several new Splunk customers as well as reunited with a couple existing ones that I hadn't seen in a while. It was nice all around and I learned a lot. (http://www.meetup.com/Splunk/Plano-TX)

Splunking Outside The Box -v2.0

If you attended my technical presentation @ the Splunk 2010 users.conf event last called “Splunking Outside The Box“, then you’re probably aware of just how esoteric my thinking can be when it comes to creatively leveraging Splunk for the more non-sensible, yet highly educational use cases.

For example, I showed-off my Splunk for Texas Lotto App, which my team here @ Splunk uses each month to pick our “winning” numbers.

Yes, I plan to …

Splunk Tag Lines

splunk> take the sh out of IT.

IMHO, this is our all-time best, most clever, and probably our most requested Splunk tag line (and Splunk t-shirt).

I will go as far as to say that this tag line, in some ways, put Splunk on the map in the minds of our earliest customers and still continues to imprint itself on our customers today more than ever (and probably will for a long time too).

And as you may be aware, other Splunk tag lines include:

  • splunk> Finding your faults, just like mom.
  • splunk> because ninjas are too busy
  • splunk> All batbelt. No tights.

But what I really want to say is, some of our own customers have come up with …
