Splunk Fundamentals 2

Training Summary
This course continues building on searching and reporting commands with the introduction of additional transforming commands such as the eval command. Other major topics to be covered include filtering and formatting results, correlating events, the creation of knowledge objects, using field aliases and calculated fields, creating tags and event types, creation and use of macros, creating workflow actions and data models, and normalizing data with the Common Information Model (CIM).
Splunk Fundamentals 1 or a basic understanding of the Splunk interface, and searches and commands.
