Top 5 Monitoring Software Packages for the Enterprise

Splunk Cloud

Splunk is another one of our favorite software packages for monitoring and managing logs. Splunk is one of the top and best known software’s for data management of logs and events.

Pros: The best part about Splunk is its event forwarder ability. Splunk’s forwarder comes preconfigured to forward all events on the server to Splunk for analysis. The logs have plenty of data to help troubleshoot issues. A big feature that is helpful is the auto fill to help search query’s.

Cons: There are only two complaints I have about Splunk. The first, Its GUI is a little too simple and could use some updating to be competitive with OMS. The second, I would also like to see some preinstalled Dashboards.
