I wanted to let you know that I used to work for Splunk. I was a sales engineer that supported federal customers. I definitely have an affinity for the Splunk platform and prefer it over other options for a number of reasons that I am glad to discuss at any time. There are many better resources for Splunk support than this forum, but I am glad to provide any assistance if folks need it. I use Splunk on my home network for monitoring various things like system logs and netflow data from my firewall.
