This tutorial was a brief introduction to navigating the search interface and using the search language. It walked you through running some basic searches and saving the results as a report and dashboard, but you can do much more with the Splunk software. For more details, see the following manuals:
- Search Manual: Explains how to search and use the Splunk Search Processing Language (SPL). Look here for more thorough examples of writing Splunk searches to calculate statistics, evaluate fields, and report on search results.
- Search Reference: Provides a reference for users who are looking for a catalog of the search commands with complete syntax, descriptions, and examples for usage.
Splunk has a wide range of documentation. Tutorials. Use case scenarios. Manuals for administrators, developers, and users. SDK and command syntax documentation.
There are separate manuals for searches, dashboards and visualizations, reports, pivots, and alerts.
You will find all of the information on the Splunk Documentation site.
