INETCO NetStream adds a new dimension to Splunk software by making it easy to access and analyze application transaction data alongside other machine data
September 30, 2013 – .conf2013, Las Vegas, Nevada – INETCO Systems Limited today announced the beta availability of INETCO NetStream at .conf2013, the Splunk Worldwide Users’ Conference 2013. INETCO NetStream collects network data, transforms it into rich transaction events, and streams this transaction data in real-time into Splunk Enterprise. This new capability enhances Splunk users’ ability to resolve application and IT infrastructure issues, identify potential security and compliance incidents, and gain real-time insights into user experience and business performance. Splunk users can sign up for the free INETCO NetStream beta at www.inetco.com/NetStream.
“Access to transaction data is a critical, universal need for security, IT and business operations teams,” said Bijan Sanii, President & CEO of INETCO. “INETCO NetStream puts this information within easy reach of Splunk Enterprise users. Access to high-quality, real-time transaction events captured directly off the underlying network brings a whole new context to all other machine-generated data in Splunk Enterprise.”
INETCO NetStream is a network-based application that consumes packets, either directly from a host machine or remotely from SPAN ports, reconstructs individual transaction events, and streams them to Splunk Enterprise in real-time, so that the transaction data can be easily indexed, searched, analyzed and visualized. Information passed from INETCO NetStream into Splunk Enterprise includes fields from the application payload, correlated application response times, network request, and network response links for each transaction event. This data is filtered before ingestion, and presented in a fashion that makes it easy to analyze the behavior of every transaction in Splunk Enterprise, as well as specific elements of the application payload (e.g. customer IDs, dollar amounts, transaction types, etc.). INETCO NetStream is simple to install and configure, works out of the box for typical web-based applications, and can be extended to decode additional protocols using Python APIs.
“Our partner community provides additional data sources that enhance the value enterprises and organizations get from Splunk software as a platform for machine data by allowing them to leverage the data across a wide range of use cases,” said Bill Gaylord, Senior Vice President of Business Development of Splunk. “INETCO NetStream will bring network-based transaction data into Splunk software, enabling users to create new correlations and insights about their business.”
INETCO VP of Products, Marc Borbas, will be presenting: You can’t always log what you want at .conf2013, at 1:45pm, Wednesday, October 2 in the Castellana 1 (level 3) meeting room at The Cosmopolitan Hotel of Las Vegas. Join Marc and learn how INETCO NetStream can unlock a powerful new stream of transaction event data from your network to isolate application performance issues faster, as well as provide rich operational intelligence to more people across your organization. Splunk Enterprise users can also sign up to try the free INETCO NetStream for Splunk beta at www.inetco.com/NetStream.
