Splunk Light was designed for small IT environments as a real-time log search and analysis solution to quickly put out—and even prevent—IT fires.
Built on proven Splunk technology, Splunk Light provides an integrated solution for server and network monitoring that gathers all of your log data (e.g., IIS logs, syslogs, event logs, web logs and network logs) from different and distributed systems in real time, puts it in one place and provides dynamic alerts, reports and dashboards.
With the powerful Splunk Search Processing Language (SPL™), Splunk Light enables real-time machine data analysis and issue resolution, and doesn’t require a data scientist with special skills.
Now you can proactively analyze problems and take immediate action—all without having to manually gather, organize and sift through gigabytes of data.
Splunk Light is available as software or a cloud service. Take a test drive and try Splunk Light for free. You can download Splunk Light at http://splk.it/s48 or sign up for a free 15 day cloud service trial at http://splunk.force.com/SplunkCloud?prdType=SplunkLightCloud.
