Splunk: more than just log mining

I'm sitting in a demo in our product development team where Splunk is
the focus of our brown bag meeting. As clustered/distributed
enterprise web applications dump terabytes of logs in relatively short
order, combing through logs for troubleshooting and/or support is a
heineous task. What Splunk offers is an ultra fast indexing/searching
tool for logs. With a slick front end that combines HTML with AJAX,
realtime searches of logs us quick a painless. The app also adds saved
for searches, highly customizable options, and even realtime alerts
based on user input. With PCI monitoring, the app enables more
credible audit defenses.

Let's just say I'm a bit impressed. Even a free windows single license
version exists. Check out for more info.

Dropped A off at Bible Camp: saw rooster in parking lot

Knee checkup for A and me: wish us luck

It has been over 8 months since I was supposed to have had my knee
checked out. I'm not really sure why I've put it off. I think I'm at a
good point in my recovery to where the evaluation should be good. Just
hope it goes just as well for A.
