Splunk is a search engine that indexes and lets you search, navigate, alert, and report on data from any application, server, or network device. It lets you securely access logs, configurations, scripts and code, messages, traps and alerts, activity reports, stack traces, and metrics across thousands of components from one place in real time. This data can include Apache logs, Sendmail logs, J2EE events, custom application logs, configuration files, or any other type of file that a sysadmin or developer will need to examine on a regular basis.
New features include interactive reporting, dashboards and personalization, an expanded search language, scripted inputs, a deployment server, a Firefox browser toolbar, flexible event typing, native 64-bit support, multi-processor indexing, and native input from a formatsl archive.
