Meet Atlas Monitor

Creating incredible results and outcomes in Splunk requires what we call “data certainty.” Meaning, you know you have all the data you need, and you have a way to be alerted when you don’t (due to a data source going “offline,” for example).

Atlas Monitor provides unparalleled visibility into your Splunk data, and powerful alerting capabilities. Dashboards, alerts, visualization, and Enterprise Security all rely on a constant and reliable feed of data flowing in to Splunk. Without pro-active measures to monitor and alert, these data streams can fail, causing inaccurate reporting and cascading failures.

And bad data is worse than having no data at all.

Track and alert on data failures

Splunk admins can utilize Atlas’s simple interface to create “Monitors,” which track and alert on data ingest failures, preventing errors and increasing reliability. Monitors efficiently utilize Splunk resources to do more with less, while providing highly-detailed reporting (without adding complexity).

Further, admins are able to create Monitor Groups within the application to consolidate reporting, and can leverage lookup tables and custom searches to make effective use of Change Management Knowledge Objects. With Atlas Monitor, admins have a powerful tool that will increase data flow stability and awareness.

Monitor Capabilities

  • At-a-glance summaries to empower creators to quickly assess data flow health with custom thresholding
  • Group related data flows together for visualizations and simplified reporting
  • Leverage metric indexes and enhanced searching to reduce resource utilization
  • Report on outages to enable historical tracking of downtime
  • Automatically send alerts by email when Monitors breach thresholds
  • Integrate lookup tables for integrating CMDB and assets & identities files
  • Create custom searches to monitor unique data sets utilizing advanced base searches

Now that you know how the Monitor application can take the guess work out of your Splunk data, why not check out our Atlas documentation for a closer look, or schedule a 1:1 discovery session to answer any questions you may have?
