Splunk Search

Managing Eventtypes and Tags

Any recommended best practices for managing eventtypes and their corresponding tags?

I've found the Splunk Common Information Model to be fairly helpful in starting a taxonomy.

I've also been using the following search to review events and their tags

*  | dedup eventtype | fields eventtype, tag::eventtype

Any other recommendations, best practices, thoughts?

Why not just use the event types admin page?

http://localhost:8000/en-US/manager/search/saved/eventtypes

(adjust the base URL for your Splunk install, of course).

Thanks gkanapathy!

I forgot all about this. I was thinking along the lines of a report of some sort (maybe similar to eventtyper), but this will help.
