When Splunk is receiving data from multiple hosts, it opens up the possibility of diagnosing issues across multiple machines. Look at how you can do that by generating an error and watching it appear on multiple systems.
- [Instructor] Now that we've got data…coming from multiple sources,…let's look at how to take advantage of that.…First let's try a simple search.…We'll look for the word boot again.…And I'll set the time to all time.…We'll click search.…So here's our search results coming in for that keyword.…And if we look over at selected fields…you'll see that host has a four next to it.…You can see here all are different host names.…And there's another one here ubuntu-xenial.…
That's just the host name of my Splunk server…as I was setting it up.…So those are some old records.…You may or may not see the same thing.…Don't worry about it if you do.…So let's filter down just to our Gitea server.…I'll just click on the name and here it's just got…boot and host equals gitea.…If we looked through this list we can see all those results.…We'll scroll back up.…This is where things can get really powerful.…You can actually create complex searches across systems…using the more advanced search syntax.…
So you could search for web errors on the web server…
