Setting success metrics

Measurements provide statistics about key performance indicators (KPIs), and help you measure whether the best practices you adopt are having an effect on measurable goals. Good metrics provide transparency to you and your stakeholders.

Guidelines for measuring success

Develop a metrics dashboard

A metrics dashboard provides a way to show progress as you implement more best practices and optimize your Splunk implementation. A metrics dashboard enables you to quickly and proactively discover whether the best practices you put in place are having a measurable effect on the goals you set so you can adjust and pivot as needed.

Enable telemetry

Leverage the expertise of the Splunk Customer Success organization by enabling telemetry features on your Splunk deployment.
