Administering Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring

Now that you have the core components, let’s focus on administration. It’s important for you to know how to best manage the tool in order to optimize usage throughout your organization.

You can find all of the documentation for administration-related activities here, but let’s touch on a few important ones to be aware of as you get started:

  • Create and manage users. Add users to the instance and begin onboarding their data.
  • Access tokens. Use authentication tokens to authenticate Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring API requests, track API usage and control your use of resources.
  • System Limits. System limits help ensure good performance, stability and reliability. It is important to simply be aware of these.
  • Permissions. Manage permissions on detectors, dashboard groups and dashboards.
