Splunking on Hadoop with Hunk
So I’ve seen a lot of people asking what does your Pluralsight: Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk course cover.
Well, for starters it covers a ton about starting out in Splunk. Admins and Developers will quickly setup a Splunk development environment then fast forward to using Splunkbase to expand use cases. However the most popular portion of the course is the deep dive into Hunk.
Hunk is Splunk’s plugin that allows for data to be imported from Hadoop or exported into Hadoop. Both Splunk and Hadoop are huge in analytics (big understatement here) and with Hunk, users can visualize their Hadoop data in Splunk. One of the biggest complaints with Hadoop is the poor visualization tools to support this thriving community. Many admins are already using Splunk so it’s no wonder Splunk is filling that gap.
In my Analyzing Machine Data with Splunk course I dig into using Hunk with the Splunking on Hadoop with Hunk module. This module is close to 40 minutes of Hunk material from setting up Hunk to moving stock data from HDFS to Hunk. I’ve worked with Pluralsight to setup a quick 8 minute preview video on the Splunking on Hadoop with Hunk module checkout it out and be sure to watch on Pluralsight for the full Hunk deep dive.
