New to Splunk: Are there any study guides to understand Splunk tools and features?


Hey Experts,

I am new to Splunk and want to learn the tool. I have already installed free Splunk Enterprise on my system. Need to know if there are any study guides which are inclined more towards some labs that can be performed to understand the tools better.

Any help is highly appreciated.
