Splunk data structure

Explorer

Hi All,
I have few questions in mind. Even we read in the article.
1. How splunk is managed data. Will it accept only structured data or unstrcutured data as well.
2. Is there any difference between SPLUNK, Solar and Big data.
3. We can consider this(Splunk) alternative tool for Big data and Solar.
4. How Splunk is managing unstructured data.

Please provide me some details on this.

  1. Splunk accepts structured and unstructured data
  2. Yes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_data, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Solr and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splunk
  3. "Big Data" is the description used when talking about large and varying data sets. Apache Solr is a way to search across "Big Data" (think search engine for your data). Splunk provides business insights on "Big Data". If you need to extract business insights from "Big Data" use Splunk.
