What is in the tutorial data?
The tutorial data file is updated daily and contains events that are timestamped for the previous seven days. The tutorial data contains several types of information about the fictitious online store Buttercup Games. Buttercup, for those of you that don't know, is a pony and is the Splunk mascot.
The information includes access.log files, secure.log files, and vendor_sales.log files from mail servers and web accounts.
access.log file data
The raw data in the access.log file is difficult to read and analyze when you have hundreds, if not thousands, of lines of data. Each day, every day. That is where the Splunk platform comes in.
