Monitor Overview



Atlas Monitor provides you with unparalleled visibility and alerting into your Splunk environment's data ingests. Dashboards, Alerts, and Enterprise Security all rely on a constant and reliable feed of data flowing into the Splunk environment. Without pro-active measures, however, these data streams can fail, causing inaccurate reporting and cascading failures. Splunk admins can utilize Atlas's simple interface to create Monitors, which will track and alert on data ingest failures, preventing errors and increasing reliability. Monitors efficiently utilize Splunk resources to do more with less, while providing highly detailed reporting without added complexity. Within Atlas Monitor, admins are able to group together Monitors to consolidate reporting, and can leverage lookup tables and custom searches to leverage Change Management Knowledge Objects. With Atlas Monitor, admins have a powerful tool that will increase data flow stability and awareness.
