The Splunk App for Unix 5.0 is finally here!
| history | search app=”*nix”
Those of you who have been Splunk users for more than 4 years remember the glorious launch of the original Splunk App for Unix. Back in those days, the app shipped with the core product alongside the Splunk App for Windows and had some pretty cutting edge features, including knowledge, dashboards, and saved searches with out-of-the-box email alerts (we’re still sorry, Paul S.).
Well, it took a while for us to follow up that triumphant release, but wait no longer: the new app is finally here! And oh, what’s better, the app is FREE!!! Read on for the technical details of the app.…
Splunking jQuery Conference: drive user experience online and on site!
Last June, jQuery Foundation held their conference in beautiful Portland, Oregon. As a Diamond Sponsor, we wanted to build something that would be beneficial to the jQuery community part of our Splunk4Good initiatives. What’s better than Splunking the entire conference?
The goal is to capture client-side data (e.g. pageviews, link/button clicks, hovers), and build powerful analytics & visualizations in order to tackle the following business questions:
- Which topics are visitors most interested in?
- What are the top traffic sources for visitors who purchase tickets?
- How are visitors interacting with the site, including
Welcome to the new Splunk Apps site!
Hi All –
Many of you are familiar with Splunkbase, the site that has been host to both Splunk Answers Q&A and Splunk Apps. To date, Splunkbase has been a very popular resource, serving thousands of visitors daily. However, we’ve heard your feedback — the combination of the two was somewhat confusing and suboptimal. We listened, and what we’re delivering today is the result of your feedback.
I’m proud to announce the release of the new Splunk Apps site — a place to discover new content to extend the power of your Splunk deployment!
Our redesign and relaunch of the Splunk Apps site has two major goals—to improve the new content discovery experience and to enable our developers to …
New Keyword App
One of the most common requests I get from new customers is that they want to centrally collect all their machine generated time series data and search for a keyword like error or RuntimeException. Obviously Splunk can do this. Then, the next set of questions concern things like give me the top hosts or applications producing this keyword, show me a baseline of last week vs this week for this keyword, show me a slope line on the trend for this or any keyword(s), find outliers that go beyond the average occurrences for the keyword and then try to predict what may happen in the future.
To answer these questions and then some, I’ve created an app template that …
By the title of this post, many of you may assume that I am referring to network traffic. However, today’s topic is about monitoring vehicular traffic incidents or what some of us call accidents in most cases. I found a feed from http://cityrss.traffic.com/feeds that lists recent incidents for a known USA city if the city is used as the last part of the URL. The information returned explains the jam factor (how crowded the roads are), severity of the incident and its location. Armed with this information, I created a Splunk app around it and put it on Splunkbase for you to use. Instructions are provided on what text file to update to add or delete the cities you …

Speech-to-text with Splunk: converting natural language into Splunk search commands
Is that possible at all? At Splunk, we are constantly experimenting ways to make Splunk more usable. This new approach allows users to “talk” to Splunk (with a microphone) and transforms natural language into Splunk search command.
Notice the small little microphone icon in the textfield? That small little icon unlocks a huge potential to make splunk more user friendly.
