Improving Splunk Performance and Lowering CPU Usage with Cribl Logstream

by Cribl

Jan 10, 2022

This white paper will cover why you should adopt a new method for Splunk searches and how you can use Cribl's LogStream to improve Splunk performance and lower CPU usage. We'll focus on Splunk as the destination, but regardless of destination, transforming the data first helps reduce infrastructure costs and storage costs, enabling you to do more with your software license.

By improving Splunk performance for search and lowering CPU usage you can:

  • Ingest even more data, without stretching your license or budget
  • Reduce Splunk infrastructure size, including indexers and search heads
  • Control Splunk costs as they switch to workload-based pricing
  • Lessen hardware requirements, particularly for Splunk Cloud customers
