welcome to video to of module to today. We're talking about the *** website, which is obviously a really simple topic. But I think it's important to know what resources you have available, especially when you're scrambling to find a solution for something. Ah, this is just my recommendation of things already have bookmarked.
00:18
So if we pull up the Splunk website, we're just on *** dot com here, and it's a little bit easy to get lost into in all the information that they've got available. If we're just look at Resource is, for example, they've got they've got e books you could read. They've got
00:33
tech briefs, videos, webinars, white papers. There's tons of stuff here, so I think some of the critical things to know exist are
00:41
a split docks. Um,
00:44
blanc actually has amazing documentation.
00:48
And so if you wanted to just select your product here, you could search. If you're looking for something specific little bit, let's just look at us blinking her price
00:57
so that they've even got it broken down in different categories. Um, give your installation manual, and I guarantee that's going to pretty much tell you everything you would need to know, um, barring
01:07
unusual circumstances how to install it.
01:11
And then we could look at, you know, adding Dida.
01:15
I learned how to configure the swing out on for Paulo Alto Networks on a single instance of ***. Enterprise. That's cool. Um,
01:23
they have really in depth documentation. So let's just click on one of these
01:29
through the typical Paige. Um,
01:32
you can go down along the side here,
01:34
tells you how to insult this log server, all the other things, um, something to pay attention to this version up in the corner here.
01:42
If you don't have the latest release, you should go back a little bit.
01:47
Let's go back really far.
01:49
We'll see if this even exists for version.
01:52
Oh, yeah, that might not even
01:56
be compatible.
02:01
And, sir, we can see
02:02
the documentation relevant for this particular version here.
02:07
Another place that's extremely helpful is *** answers.
02:12
Chances are, if you have a question for something, somebody else has already asked it, and there are answers to it. This is extremely active community, as we can see. You know, somebody lasts.
02:23
Modified a question an hour ago, three hours ago, two hours ago, people are regularly
02:30
answering and asking questions on here.
02:32
Um,
02:34
so when he ever you run into an issue, one of the first things you might do is just try and see if there's already a really good solution for it.
02:42
Stealing bases, Another place to look at. Um, if you're trying to even decide
02:46
ifs, blanc is gonna work for you. This might be a good place to start. You can look for what kinds of APS that they have their most major products. Actually, if they make sense to integrate with ***, they've got something pre built to do that,
03:00
um so you can check on here,
03:04
see what kinds of abso that they have. And then in later videos, we're gonna talk about how to use APS. But you can see here like they've got, you know, slack notifications that
03:15
you can add to ***, all kinds of stuff.
03:17
So it's a good place to be aware of.
03:21
Additionally, if we go back to splint dot com, I said I was gonna touch again on certifications just so that to make sure you understand. So if we go to training,
03:30
there are
03:31
lots of learning materials available from Splunk directly.
03:37
Um This is the course
03:39
I really recommend that you take
03:42
this Introduction to *** is actually a little more basic than this for a fundamentals one. Of course, you would think that that would be really simple, but it goes a lot more in depth than you would expect.
03:53
So after completing this course, I recommend going into that if you're interested in sports
03:58
and then taking the exam that comes with that so you could be a certified
04:02
course blank user
04:05
along here, we have different learning past. So if you have a particular interest in mind or you just want to you browse what they have available, check these out and they do update this pretty regularly. So I like to come back here every now and again and see what they've added. See what they've changed
04:24
anyway. That's pretty much the *** site. So go ahead and make your bookmarks. I think that will help you out, and
04:31
we'll be on to the next topic. Thanks for watching
