An Illustration of the Splunk Data Lifecycle

By |Published On: November 2nd, 2014|

Splunk does a lot, which means there’s a lot to know. An important part of understanding Splunk is grasping how Splunk handles your data, or data lifecycle (if you’re into fancy words).

Although Splunk does a great job with documentation, the issue we’ve run across is the tendency to use a lot of words. So, we’ve put together an infographic-style piece that illustrates the Splunk data lifecycle based on their Splunk wiki entry. Hopefully it helps to make a very text-heavy process more visual in nature and a little clearer. Enjoy!
