Hello and welcome to the Splunk Enterprise Certified Administrator course on Sai Buri. Today we're on the first module of 10 for the course. Then this will just be a quick overview. As you can see from the course, outlines is gonna be a fairly long course, a lot of content to cover.
00:17
And so I thought it would be best to start with just a
00:21
quick one lesson module to give you an overview off the course,
00:26
the main learning objectives for this lesson, or just to review the structure and requirements for the Enterprise admin exam and then review the structure of the class and why we set up that way and then quickly talk on how labs will be used throughout the course.
00:46
So as far as requirements, there is a document spelling produces called the Splunk Admin test blueprint provided the link to that for your convenience. And this basically goes over
00:57
all of the requirements and all the knowledge areas that you're expected to have to be able to succeed on this point administrator test.
01:06
And so I took that document and map that directly to the content of this course. So there is a one for one covering of every topic and task that you should know how to dio from that blueprint and then represented in this course.
01:23
So a little bit of information about the examine itself. It'll be a 57 minute time multiple choice test where there will be 63 questions and you can do the exam through Pearson Vue. So that means you can register online to either go on site at one of their testing facilities to take this,
01:42
or you can take it remotely from home. If that is
01:46
mawr your slaver.
01:49
So now into the actual content of the exam. As you see there's 10 categories of information, and this comes exactly out of the test blueprint that I mentioned earlier, and this very closely maps to our syllabus and the categories of
02:06
there are the topics that we're gonna talk about throughout the course.
02:09
So just a quick note as well. If you want to check out the test blueprint, it is listening. The resource is and it will have a breakdown of sub categories and individual items that you should specifically know how to dio on those air. The topics that I mentioned are
02:28
map directly this course, so we will cover everything in there. But if you want to look at it more closely, you can access it. The resource is
02:36
talking about quickly, just like how I structured the course. So we start out with the first few modules where we talk about what Splunk is and high level conceptual things like architecture and you know, the constituent parts that make up Splunk as a system.
02:53
So I don't help you get a high level. Understanding off
02:57
Splunk is a concept. And then from there we move into deep dives on specific topics. So we get into, like, a lot more than detailed information about how to set things up or getting into nuances about those specific topics. And I also ordered it in a way. So it goes from
03:15
high level understanding of Splunk
03:17
into
03:19
topics that are related to setting up Splunk. So that is ready for use. And then we finally move into bringing data in processing the data and the ultimately searching. But we don't really talk much about searching in this course, as you should already cover that information in the power user or users certifications
03:40
As Faras Labs go, we're gonna be using them heavily. Every single module, basically in this course will have at least one lab, and some of them have upwards of five or six labs. I think that a lot of this information is best suited toe learn by doing or or or seeing it done
04:00
versus than just having a lecture deal.
04:02
And then also, I want to push the idea that
04:05
whatever labs we do hear, you should attempt to emulate and replicate on your own just to get more hands on experience with this stuff. Because, ah, lot of the concepts and command line
04:20
expressions are gonna be something you commit to memory very easily. If you just do listeningto lectures and do some flash cards, it's going to stick a lot better if you actually typed it. So it's just
04:34
it's just a better way to make sure that you're prepared for this test. So that's really all I needed to say about lab usage. So during this quick lesson, we covered what the requirements for the exam are, where they come from, which is the admin blueprint,
04:51
and then also how and why I structured of course the way I do, which I hope
04:57
helps you to better understand and grasp
05:00
basically the importance of the concepts as we go.
05:02
And then we also talked quickly just about how heavily labs will be utilized in this course. So that wraps it up for module one. The introduction overview. So
05:14
next will move on into basically just some some basic administrative knowledge You should know about Splunk before we move into some of the more specific topics.
05:26
So I look forward to seeing you in the next video.
