What does Splunxter do best?

Our flagship product is the guaranteed Splunk Health Check Program in which Splunxter's engineers use our proprietary Splunk app, combined with in-house expertise, to detect, catalogue, and prioritize a multitude of possible errors, search inefficiencies, and other "unbest practices" that are degrading your Splunk infrastructure performance or even mishandling your data, which leads directly to incorrect results and erroneous analysis. After our 3-part analysis (covering Architecutre, Data Integrity + User Behavior), we work with your engineers to correct these errors and to create "best-practices" documentation and training in order to reduce the likelihood of any recurrence. Most customers schedule periodic followups to ensure that things continue to run correctly and efficiently in the future. Any company that has been using Splunk for any length of time probably has so many of these problems that this service can pay for itself by delaying or even eliminating large CapEx costs through the rejuvenation of your existing infrastructures as-is. This service will identify and correct the following common problems, among many others:

Our Top-Seller is the "Splunk Gotchas" class, a 2-day crash course that covers 50 use-cases where a misuse of Splunk will not error outright (so you are not alerted that there is any problem), but will generate incorrect results. It is like vaccination for Splunk (it does spread in the data cernter like a virus). Here is what some former students have said about this indispensable training:
