Atlas Assessment Overview


Atlas Assessment

Atlas Assessment is a powerful tool that comes packaged in the Atlas Core Element. Using Assessment, a Splunk admin can have key visibility into the health of their Splunk environment and see how Atlas can solve issues and improve processes from top to bottom. It is recommended that all Atlas owners start with Atlas Assessment to identify weaknesses in their current Splunk Deployment, and where Atlas can enable immediate results. Following Atlas Assessment recommendations can improve Splunk search speeds, increase data stability, reduce Splunk costs and ingests, and greatly improve Splunk adoption across users and admins.

Don't Have Atlas, But Looking for an Assessment?

Atlas Assessments can be performed using the stand-alone Atlas Assessment, available on SplunkBase. This is available for everyone and does not require an Atlas License.
