What are other resources for public facing data that can be used to work with Splunk?

New Member


I need to find any data such as log files to work with Splunk. This is a web site that could be useful.

Other suggestions?

Hi criferr,
I'm not sure to have understood your request: do you need logs to learn to use Splunk?
If this is your request see the Splunk Tutorial that guides you to Splunk and gives also the logs to use:

Are you looking for open data sets? There are so many. Just do an internet search for open data sets.

Many applications provide a public facing API that you can pull data from. One of my favorites is Zillow. Just google around and you'll find plenty of things that you can load into Splunk.

here is a doc that explains getting data into splunk using apps or forwarders and whatnot. I'm not sure how useful this is to your question, exactly, but I thought it might help.
