Just getting started with Splunk. I'm looking to get better instrumentation and visibility into our systems. In some cases this could be for debugging, in other cases for audit-trail type uses.
Since I'm going to (re)write all of our logging code in these systems, does anybody have any suggestions?
Certainly one thing I'm looking to accomplish is "joining" events across log files as they flow through our system. Aside from that, my use cases seem pretty basic. But since i'm in this position where I can design my logs just for splunk I thought people who've been doing this for a while could have some tips that might make my life easier later on.
