ExtraHop Networks has collaborated with Splunk to offer end-to-end visibility of application environments.

The Splunk App for ExtraHop helps to visualize and analyze ExtraHop data in Splunk.

The policy-based logging capability in the ExtraHop system enables IT Operations teams to achieve the following goals:

- Generate consistently formatted logs across heterogeneous datacenter components, such as network storage systems. The ExtraHop system provides logging of networking, application, database, and storage metrics in a consistent manner regardless of vendor.

- Log high-priority events, anomalies, or thresholds with precision and according to set policies.

- Log specific correlated network, web, VDI, database, or storage events monitored by the ExtraHop system, such as when database transactions exceed a set amount from one or more specified clients or file access times across heterogeneous networked storage systems exceed a certain threshold.

"We are excited about the ExtraHop and Splunk integration,” said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop Networks. “Our policy-based logging capability enables customers to export metrics to Splunk Enterprise that they otherwise could not because of performance concerns — such as end-user experience, network performance trends, database queries, and storage internals. Several forward-thinking customers are already using ExtraHop and Splunk together to meet their complete application performance management needs. The integration of our products will accelerate our customers’ time-to-value and enable them to retire their legacy APM tools.”

“Both Splunk and ExtraHop are pushing the envelope for application performance management,” said Bill Gaylord, SVP of Business Development, Splunk. “With the correlation that Splunk Enterprise provides between ExtraHop data and other IT data sources, datacenter operations teams have a whole new level of visibility and control.”
