Almost every business today is dependent on its IT systems, which gives it the insights into its day to day operations.
Data generated by analyzing metrics can often be hectic for a human mind to reach for individual decisions. Herein comes the need for AIOps.
AIOps mixes artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate the preexisting processes.
The best AIOps tool is the one having capabilities like combining data from multiple sources and driving insights from them.
The motive behind this is to address the issues automatically as well as in real-time.
Below mentioned are the essential basic features that a user should look into while opting for AIOps tools:
IT operations work on a daily set of rules.
These rules are put into implementation to troubleshoot various IT operations.
An AIOps tool should be flexible with such rules.
For example, there is a need to update any network device. Say a particular device might be able to handle the update, but the older ones won’t be able to handle it.
The adaptability feature of AIOps should be efficient enough in rerouting this update to an appropriate device that can handle such an upgrade.
Anything less than a second is considered to be an ideal time-lapse for calculating real-time data.
An AIOps tool should be capable of detecting IT related issues in real-time from the time when data gets introduced to the system until the exhaustion of that data point.
Users should opt for such an AIOps tool that could help them improve the existing data.
In day-to-day IT operations, an enormous amount of data is collected through logs as well as events.
An effective AIOps tool would enrich this data by combining it with real-time data that includes remote data that will provide time-series information.
For example, historical data such as logs and events data are enriched by adding metadata as well as tags that optimizes them by adding context while searching.
This information can be further used to bring out key values.
One should opt for such an AIOps tool that has the capacity of mixing up with cloud platforms.
Owing to this, it will be beneficial for the IT teams to counter and address people from a different site in a secure manner.
AIOps tools can be more beneficial if monitored data pipeline is provided, by which collected information can be easily facilitated across teams.
An AIOps tool can build itself up, supported by nothing in the initial stages.
An efficient AIOps tool should be able to map itself with the existing network standards and other storage devices.
It should be able to monitor the environment and adapt to the ongoing data flow.
This technology was founded by Rob Das, Erik Swan, Michael Baum in the year 2003.
Splunk was founded as a search engine for log files that get stored in systems.
Splunk Enterprise is the AIOps product, developed by Splunk.
It allows its users to analyze and visualize the data gathered by the IT components.
Data is collected from various sources like websites, applications, etc. and after the data source is defined in the systems, the indexing part starts.
Indexed data is then presented in a series of events from where it can be searched as well as viewed.
Most of the time, users connect Splunk Enterprise with the web thereby keep track of the deployments and reports, running searches Splunk Web is used.
Some of the Key Features of Splunk are as below:
- Search: Insights from the data like calculating metrics, predictions, and event retrieving are provided here.
- Alerts: Whenever a configured search condition is met, an alert is issued for both historical as well as real-time searches.
- Reports: It allows you to save searches as reports which a user can later add to dashboards and can even schedule thee reports for generating alerts for particular conditions.
Splunk Enterprise’s price is prices are based on index volume per day with minimum starting at 1 GB per day for $2,070 per GB for an annual license, and for perpetual, it will cost $6,210 per GB.
