Course Objectives

To monitor the performance of your infrastructure and applications, you need real-time metrics. Splunk IM offers support for a broad range of integrations for collecting system metrics for infrastructure components. Using the provided client libraries, you can create custom metrics that give you the flexibility to monitor all aspects of your services or applications.

This 2-day virtual course, targeted towards developers and DevOps, focuses on creating custom metrics to monitor your applications/services with Splunk IM. Learn to instrument applications/services to send in custom metrics that characterize the application of service. Define relevant metadata for your metrics to let you find, filter and aggregate the metrics that you want to chart or alert on. Create charts and custom dashboards to visualize these custom metrics. Create detectors to monitor the metrics to alert when there are any issues with the application or service.
