SplunkIt

Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
Overview
Details
SplunkIt is a performance benchmark kit designed to provide a simplified set of performance measurements for Splunk. If you are a Splunk administrator that wants to perform a straightforward benchmark of your hardware setup, this is the tool for you.

The kit creates a small dataset comprised of syslog events (50 GB) that can be leveraged for measuring the following performance characteristics:

-indexing throughput
-search response time

*Note that this kit is not an exhaustive performance benchmarking toolkit as it does not cover multi-user scenarios, concurrent/streaming workloads, distributed environments, and objective hardware measurements.

Compare metrics by running this benchmark on other hardware you own. Compare against our systems. We'll be sharing some of our results on <http: blogs.splunk.com="" tag="" performance="">. Share yours too by sending us results at splunkit@splunk.com


Details

Index Test

How long does it take Splunk to index 50GB of syslog data?

Search Test

How long does it take to run a search through Splunk Web?

  • Splunk server
    • contains 50GB of syslog data in its index (from running the above Index Test)
    • is indexing syslog data (incoming rate of 3GB/hr)
    • is running 60+ custom scheduled searches (not all at once)
    • is running default (out-of-the-box) Splunk scheduled searches
  • Search user
    • runs a search using Splunk Web
    • records amount of time it takes for the search to complete
    • sleeps 1s, then repeat

Test runs for 80 minutes

Extending SplunkIt

How does Splunk behave with other types of data? With more/less data volume? On a different deployment topology? With more search users running different searches, maybe hitting a custom dashboard?

SplunkIt is easily extensible (and different search user profiles included to help you get started)
