Myles Young
I am a father and husband with a passion for tech. I have large-scale enterprise IT experience in network security, agile development, middleware, QA, system reliability engineering, and data infrastructure engineering. I have worked in DevOps for most of my IT career with a focus on using automation and big data technologies for operational analytics and log aggregation to further support CI/CD pipelines. I have a great appreciation for distributed systems and finding non-obvious answers in mountains of data. I am excited to be working at Linux Academy where I get to share what I've learned with our awesome students!

Details

As one of the early log aggregation products in the IT industry, Splunk has remained a popular choice amongst system administrators, engineers, and developers for operational analytics. Whether you are aggregating log files, system resource utilization metrics, or application data, Splunk is there to centralize your IT data for easy search and visualization.


This course serves as in introduction to Splunk Enterprise. After getting familiar with some basic terminology and components, you will get to follow along by setting up your own standalone Splunk instance through the Linux Academy Cloud Playground. With your own instance, you can follow along as we secure our standalone Splunk instance, configure monitoring and alerting, and finally index some log data to perform search and visualization analysis.
