Can anyone give me the pros and cons of splunk vs cisco mars? Our business uses cisco mars but it is limited, thus I am not a big fan of it. I would like to know whether using splunk would be better for log review.
Pros and Cons of splunk vs cisco mars
Hello Rodger Henry,
If you are having with cisco mars due to the limitations in the storage space, then I will advice that you use splunk, which is enterprise software that has been made so easy.
Splunk is easy to try and you can download it for free from the internet. It is easy to install and has no database licenses that you will need to buy because it is absolutely free. There are no schemas that you will need to design and there are no custom connectors to maintain.
Splunk is also easy to deploy, for it allows customers to go live in days or weeks instead of months and years when using it. It has built in a better way so as it can collect and harness all your machine data. It is extremely flexible and with it you can do any type of real-time and historical analysis, and is also has the power to deliver custom dashboards and views to anyone who belongs to your organization or company.
