From WIRM to Splunk – Translating the Past to the Present

I get to do a lot of cool things at Splunk.  One of the things I have been wanting to do is incorporate the visualizations I built a long time ago for Web Interface for Resource Manger in Splunk applications.  All of those past visualizations were built using Microsoft ASP.NET and Flash.  So, I have had to use alternate methods to accomplish what I want.


Calendar Visualization

One of the first things I tackled was the calendar visualization that shows how many users log in each day in a month.  Here is the old calendar from WIRM:

WIRM Calendar

Here is what the calendar looks like in Splunk:

Splunk Calendar

If you want to see how to use this calendar visualization in your own Splunk environment, check out my Splunk blog post.

The cool thing about having this available in Splunk is that it is reusable for various types of data including security, XenDesktop/XenApp, Microsoft Windows, Unix, etc.

  1. Hello. I am interested in learning more about Splunk in a XenApp 6.5 Environment. I see here there are good statistics in general about how many users and utilization in the system. How about more detailed items such as capture ‘who’ is logging in and what ‘applicaiton’ date/time they are executing? This is the reporting feature that is not natively in Citrix but always of interest to management. Could you please consider writing something in detail on this?

    And Congrats on your move to Splunk 😉
