Everything starts from an email written by Ronnie~
DumpCamp is a group of passionate software engineers who value on good stuff like technology and best practice. Our 1st meeting was held on Philip’s home @ 2012-01-28 which is our official meeting venue. =P
We had 2 sharing sessions on our 1st official gathering.
1. Splunk by Philip
2. Introduction to Drupal by me
Splunk is a logs analysis tool. A tool looks like a search engine for aggregated log data among a bunch of applications and servers. With the help of Splunk, you could easily look up logs about system health, faults, user transactions and whatever types of log created by applications and servers. In addition, Splunk could visualize the log data into different graphical representation and there are many Splunk Apps which extend the capabilities of Splunk and make it easier to use.
For more information about Splunk and its installation, the following two articles could help.
- NW Linux – Splunk 4 Analytics: installation and first Impressions
- Notes on Security and Research – Visualizing and Investigating a Distributed Scan
Looking forward to the DumpCamp 2nd meeting. =)
