Attendees joined us on March 25th for the Getting Started with Splunk Data Manipulationworkshop, a hands-on introduction to the Splunk GUI. Attendees learned how to upload a .csv to Splunk, perform simple field extractions, and build basic dashboards and reports! During this virtual workshop, participants discovered how to utilize data to:
Build several searches to gain more insight on the data set
Explore how to set conditional searches
Build custom visualizations and how they can be edited with XML
Through the use of a second data set, attendees created a new set of data to allow us to correlate between the two. Upon completion, participants had a better understanding of how to:
Run a basic Splunk query
Build and customize a Splunk dashboard/report
Build a lookup table with Splunk and correlate between data sources
Use existing resources, such as Splunkbase to accelerate your Splunk usage
