Splunk makes alerting easy, but it's also easy to create too many alerts. Explore some of the concepts and best practices around alerts.
- [Instructor] Before we get into the hands-on…of how to set up alerts, let's take a minute to talk about…some high-level concepts around alerting.…This is an image of an FM radio signal.…It's pretty easy to see the signal in the middle.…It's the big spike.…If you were watching this while listening to it,…you'd actually see it jumping around as the music plays,…but there's something else here apart from the signal.…All this stuff around it is called noise.…That's what you hear when you're not quite tuned…to the station, the static between stations.…
Imagine that instead of being able to tune right in…to the station on your radio,…you had to also hear all of that noise,…just a low-level hiss in the background.…It would make listening to the radio,…pretty tiring for your ears.…That's why radios are able to isolate the signal…and focus on a narrower bandwidth.…In the same way, we can think of logging,…as signal and noise.…A lot of what gets logged is stuff…we generally don't care about, for example web access logs.…
