Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring Fundamentals (SIMF)

 

Course Content

This course serves as the foundation for all other Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring courses.

This 4.5-hour virtual course provides a fundamental understanding of Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring concepts such as the Splunk IM data model and different types of metadata. See how to search for metrics, find more information about a metric, visualize and alert on metrics. Learn to use appropriate rollups, interpret chart data based on chart resolution, rollups and analytic functions. All concepts are taught using lectures and scenario-based hands-on activities.

Note that a large portion of this course content was covered in the course Using Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring (retired course).

Who should attend

DevOps/SRE/Observability teams, Senior On-call Engineers, Onboarding and Monitoring Strategists and Developers.
