Splunk for Research Data

Splunk is a data collection and analysis tool specializing in machine-generated data.  Unlike traditional databases, Splunk does not require a "schema" or any kind of up-front description of the data; you simply point it at a text stream, or text file, and it ingests and indexes it automatically.  It is particularly effective if your data-type may change in the future; if you need to merge several streams of data with different formats; or if the streams are coming in at different frequencies.  This workshop will cover how Splunk organizes data as well as some typical commands for querying and working with the data.
