Deploying Splunk Inside Virtual Environments
VMware technology adoption is a standard in datacenters around the world, being used to cut costs, reduce downtime and achieve operational efficiencies. In fact, many organizations have a virtualization first or virtualization only policy.
To gain visibility across their virtual and physical infrastructures organizations frequently deploy Splunk inside VMware virtual machines.
Splunk indexes machine-generated IT data in real time, enabling deep data drill downs when needed, powerful statistical analytics and real-time dashboards and views for anyone in your organization—from server teams to business users.
Given virtualization overhead, these Splunk deployments should be carefully planned and configured to achieve the best performance. This tech brief describes performance considerations and guidelines for deploying Splunk inside VMware virtual machines.
