Welcome to Splunk Observability Cloud ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk Observability Cloud provides end-to-end visibility into your environment. Observability Cloud is made up of the following products: Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk Application Performance Monitoring (APM), Splunk Real User Monitoring (RUM), and Splunk Log Observer. If you are interested in an incident response product, you can opt in to access Splunk On-Call.

Get data in with Splunk Observability Cloud integrations ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk Observability Cloud offers support for a broad range of integrations for collecting data of all kinds, from system metrics for infrastructure components to custom data from your applications. Integrating the Observability Cloud with your systems allows you to import your data and analyze it using all of the Observability Cloud components. The integrations work with Splunk Log Observer, Splunk APM, and Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.

For instructions on how to get your data into Observability Cloud, see Start getting data in.

For more information on the supported integrations, see Supported data sources.

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring is a metrics platform to address real-time cloud monitoring requirements at scale.

For instructions on how to set up Infrastructure Monitoring, see Set up Infrastructure Monitoring.

Splunk Real User Monitoring ๐Ÿ”—

With Splunk Real User Monitoring, you can gain insight about the performance and health of the front-end user experience of your application. Splunk RUM collects performance metrics, web vitals, errors, and other forms of data to enable you to detect and troubleshoot problems in your application. For a complete view of your application from browser to back-end, integrate with Splunk APM.

Monitor browser traces with Splunk RUM ๐Ÿ”—

If you want to monitor only the browser traces of your application, then you can install Splunk RUM by itself, without Splunk APM. For directions, see Instrument and configure Splunk RUM to monitor your application.

Monitor your application from browser to back-end with Splunk RUM and Splunk APM ๐Ÿ”—

If you want to monitor your application from browser to back-end, then integrate Splunk RUM with Splunk APM. When you integrate Splunk RUM with Splunk APM, you start sending server timing metrics to Splunk RUM along with the back-end trace ID that was generated. Splunk RUM uses the server-timing header response times to associate the Splunk RUM Span with the corresponding Splunk APM Trace. For more information on Splunk APM, see Monitor applications with Splunk APM.

For information on how to install and set up Splunk APM, see Set up Splunk APM.

Splunk Application Performance Monitoring ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk APM is an application performance monitoring and troubleshooting solution for cloud-native, microservices-based applications. APM monitors applications by collecting traces. A trace is a collection of actions that occur to complete a transaction. Each action in a trace is known as a span.

For instructions on how to set up and instrument Splunk APM, see Set up Splunk APM.

Splunk Log Observer ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk Log Observer offers real-time insight into the logs in your environment. With Splunk Log Observer, you can perform code-less queries on your logs to identify and troubleshoot problems in your systems. Monitor your releases with the Splunk Log Observer Live Tail to get feedback in real-time if your new deployment or recent integration went smoothly.

To get started with Splunk Log Observer, see Set up Splunk Log Observer.

(Optional) Splunk On-Call ๐Ÿ”—

Splunk On-Call incident response software aligns log management, monitoring, chat tools, and more, for a single-pane of glass into system health. Splunk On-Call automates delivery of alerts to get the right alert, to the right person, at the right time.

For more information, see the Splunk On-Call documentation.
