Why enterprises are considering Splunk? 

Let me ask you a question- What are log files?

“ A file that records either events that occur in an operating system or other software runs, or messages between different users of a communication software.” 

When you want to know the state of your mind, you sit at one place, close the eyes and just observe the body and mind. Similarly, for any system, software- to know the state of its’ mind you search their log files. 

In the same way, when you want to know the state of all the devices located in one particular data center, looking at logfiles of each device is time taking. Here comes Splunk. 

“Splunk serves as Google for log file.”
