Splunk App monitors Active Directory

Jeremy Stanley Jeremy Stanley Profile: Jeremy Stanley

This week, users looking to monitor Active Directory got another option. San Francisco-based Splunk, Inc., an application management and security company, released the Splunk App for Active Directory.

The free tool aims to monitor performance and collect log files; it will also record PowerShell data from DNS servers. The app contains dashboards for monitoring forest health, user logons and account lockouts, and change management.

The app currently supports all versions from Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2008 R2.

Splunk’s tool is one of several in the Active Directory monitoring market. SolarWinds also offers a free permissions analyzer tool, and ManageEngine offers an AD Replication Manager, among others.
