Include user experience in Splunk with Login PI

The latest release of Login PI features an updated version of our API. You can use this API to leverage other solutions through integration, allowing you to have a centralized solution where you can view the performance of all your environments.

To enable this, we have created a prototype Splunk App, which is fully integrated with Login PI. This Login PI Splunk App collects all the statistics from Login PI and displays them in a beautiful dashboard.

What is Splunk?

“Splunk Enterprise monitors and analyzes machine data from any source to deliver Operational Intelligence to optimize your IT, security and business performance. With intuitive analysis features, machine learning, packaged applications and open APIs, Splunk Enterprise is a flexible platform that scales from focused use cases to an enterprise-wide analytics backbone.”

What is the benefit of the Login PI Splunk App?

Monitoring solutions like Splunk are great at collecting system information from multiple sources. This helps you understand the load on your resources in your environment. But does this reflect the user experience? 100% CPU utilization may not result in a bad user experience. With the virtual user of Login PI, you can add this user experience to generate the complete environment overview.

The Login PI Splunk App

When installing the Login PI Splunk App, a simple setup page helps you configure the integration with Login PI. This helps make sure Splunk knows where to collect the Login PI data from.

The Login PI Splunk App uses multiple PowerShell scripts to collect the virtual user metrics.

Once you have configured the Login PI Splunk App, Splunk will capture the data and will populate the dashboard with the results.

By default, the API collects the data for all the configured profiles, consequently the Splunk dashboard lets you switch between different profiles and timeframes.
