I would like to know certain things about Splunk:
1 - Is it web? can I make a stand around spelling?
2 - Can I add my own features?
3 - How does it get to receive data of various formats such as, CSV, JSON, Dump, and so on?
4 - Can it convert data types with ease?
5 - How to raise to receive data from third parties?

1 - What do you mean by "web"? Splunk is available as a Cloud service or you can install it in a private cloud. One accesses Splunk using a web browser. I don't understand the question about spelling.
2 - It depends on what you mean by "feature". You can create your own apps. You can create custom commands and visualizations.
3 - Splunk uses what's called "schema-on-the-fly" where data is indexed without regard to format. Each user of the data can then parse the how he wishes and extract the desired data from it.
4 - The only data types are string and number. Yes, it can convert with ease, usually automatically.
5 - I don't understand this question.

About the number 1, I'm tryind to say if is possible download the Splunk and integrate it with my own webapps, creating a user's to login on it and so on.

About the number 2. if I have some algorithm, can I put it on my Splink, right ?

Abount the number 5, I'm tryind to say, if someone can give his own Databases and I can access it by SSH, something like that.

Yes, you can download a free edition of Splunk and integrate it with our webapps. The free edition only supports a single user, however.

It depends on the complexity of the algorithm, but yes, you should be able to do that.

Splunk's DB Connect app can extract data from a database, but the free edition doesn't support DB Connect. A scripted or modular input should be able to SSH into your database and pull out data.
