What’s New In The Splunk App for VMware

Here are some highlights:
Health reports: These reports provide a real-time view of the health of your VMware environments. You can quickly identify which VMs and hosts have system resources that are in a critical state, datastores that are under- or over-utilized, alarms that have been triggered from your environments and more. You can then logically navigate from these summary pages to detailed pages. And to do…
In the Cloud at .conf12
” How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn’t sleep a minute away”
I didn’t want .conf12 to end. Hearing our customers talk about their usage of Splunk, meeting some of you face-to-face and learning all that’s going on in Splunk put me in a high trance – one that I’ve not quite experienced in Vegas before.

Server virtualization brings about tremendous benefits in gaining efficiencies, minimizing infrastructure footprint, effectively sharing resources and cost savings; however, its dynamic and distributed nature raises some new challenges in managing capacity, understanding your security posture and troubleshooting. Virtualization demands a new approach to monitoring. Capturing virtualization data, persisting and analyzing it together with data from the rest of your IT stack (like applications, storage, network…) becomes critical to go back in time and understand the root cause of any issue, trend an event and report it in full fidelity.
As you are aware, the goal at Splunk is to make machine data (structured and unstructured) accessible and usable to everyone. We’ve extended the core functionality of Splunk to capture virtualization…

Splunk Named An Application Performance Management (APM) Innovator
Recently, Gartner published a report on APM Innovators, to recognize vendors that are driving an evolution in Application Performance Management. Splunk is included in this report, even though it is not your traditional Systems or Application Monitoring tool – primarily driven by our fantastic customers who have deployed Splunk extensively to monitor their complex application environments.
This recognition is an important milestone for APM overall and for Splunk. In the past, Gartner has categorized it into 5 sub-segments – End User Experience Monitoring, Runtime Application Discovery, Modeling and Display, User-defined transaction profiling, Application deep-dive component monitoring and Analytics. However, as customers need increasingly to understand end-user experience from end to end in complex application environments, their requirements…
