Splunk and the new era of search

Well, it was a matter of time till someone does come up with on-the-fly search for the arbitrary software output and performs all sorts of advanced analysis on the huge volume of information coming out of hundreds or even thousands of machines.

I have been following this company for a year or so and seems to me they got it perfectly right, if you own a data center or a render farm that keeps reporting hundreds of lines of text per second you can now find patterns and analyze what is going on, establish search presets and basically up your game in the reactive side of things that sometimes is simply the only way.

Have a look, it is really worth your time.
