Splunk announced Splunk App for Windows 5.0 , which delivers enterprise-class monitoring for Microsoft Windows Server. It enables users to monitor their end-to-end infrastructure to prevent outages and pinpoint performance issues in minutes.
“The update to the Splunk App for Windows, as well as the recent update to the Splunk App for VMware, reflect Splunk’s commitment to creating a platform that will allow end users to analyze data from their strategic IT investments,” said Rachel Chalmers, research vice president – infrastructure, 451 Research. “Windows presents a monitoring dilemma for organizations of any size. The new version of the Splunk App for Windows should help simplify this monitoring challenge by incorporating Windows data with other data generated across the infrastructure.”
The Splunk App for Windows enables Windows operations teams to monitor and analyze components beyond basic infrastructure by collecting and indexing machine data from CPUs, memory, disk and network usage, Windows updates, event logs and more.
The Splunk App for Windows facilitates getting more machine-generated data from more sources into a single platform, enabling Splunk Enterprise to deliver more value across the enterprise by helping:
- Application teams better understand the baseline infrastructure that supports an application or service and avoid service degradation.
- Windows administrators troubleshoot performance and use real-time metrics to plan for workload delivery.
- Network administrators leverage real-time performance metrics to avoid service outages and increase performance.
- CIOs gain real-time visibility of Windows Server infrastructure performance and service levels.
