Hi Friends,
I am 1 day old with Splunk. So probably this is the most stupidest post ever made. Still, can somebody guide me where can I some free/dummy log files for practice and some guidance to keep going. Some help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Here is the Splunk Tutorial for you:

It should have those sample logs that you wanted as well.

In addition [probably best after] the tutorial you will find the Splunk Book and its accompanying exercises [and yes, sample data] very useful. It's a free download from http://www.splunk.com/goto/book

Well I am learning it for the first time that too all by myself. I was playing with the tool the whole day, but made very little progress. So ultimately though to seek help from the forum itself.
And thanks for welcoming me to the forum.
