LinuxWorld vendor news:
Splunk will announce the general availability of Splunk 3.0 this coming Monday at LinuxWorld. The 3.0 version of the IT search engine will include improved features such as search-based reporting, interactive summaries and filters, navigation capabilities and dashboards and more.
The beta version was available for trial from the Splunk Web site, and over 2500 users tried it out. An early press release reported that many customer ideas from the beta have been incorporated into the official 3.0 release.
The new interactive reporting feature allows users to analyze logs and IT data in real time while moving back and forth between unstructured search and structured reporting. Specific reports, charts, searches or alerts can be personalized and viewed in a dashboard. Search language is more specific. Splunk 3.0 also includes a deployment server, 64-bit multi-processor support and scripted inputs, and the Splunk IT wiki, SplunkBase 3.0.
