Splunk for Virtualization

White Paper Published By: Splunk

Type:  White Paper
Length:  2 pages

Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Apps for virtualization combine the power and flexibility of Splunk with a tailored experience for virtualization technologies.  These apps accelerate data collection from the virtual infrastructure and allow this data to be mashed up with data from other technology tiers such as storage, networking, applications and operating systems. 

Specifically, the Splunk App for VMware collects logs and performance metrics directly from VMware vSphere hosts as well as logs, inventory, tasks and events from vCenter Server.  The Splunk App for XenServer collects performance metrics directly from Citrix XenServer hosts and environment information from the pool master. 

The combination of Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Apps enable true end-to-end visibility in virtualized environments.   Read more about Splunk for Virtualization and how to gain operational intelligence from your virtualization data.
