    It may be that the Splunk exams are not proctored. You would take them open book after you complete the respective training course.

    Have you attended one of the courses? If so what did you think of it?

    I attended all 3 courses (User, Administrator and Developer). Because had no experience with Splunk product, the Admin and Dev I didn't understand. Because I completed the exercises (called labs), I received certificate. The labs are something like copy and paste: there is written what you need to do in a VM.

    Default Splunk or Archsight?

    Would ArcSight not be a better option? Its more known in the industry and a very mature product.

    ArcSight is the most expensive SIEM solution available. Large corporations and government agencies use it. Think of it as the Oracle of the SIEM world. Splunk may not be as feature-rich or capable, but it's far more affordable than ArcSight and better than doing event correlation manually. For those interested, ArcSight also has its own certifications.

    Are all these courses on Splunk for free, including the Splunk Architect Certification lab?

    No. Recommended courses for Architect cert are eight or nine. Only one of those is free and it's the most basic and useless one. Each course goes between $550-$1,500. The certification lab exam itself is $1,000.

    @Mike-Mike: how much is that? No free resources online?

    We have it at work, but not so much in my team. Just a little. I think it takes time to get used to using it but it's not hard (if you're just using it...setting it up might take more effort). I used it to search logs and it's been very handy.

    I have gone all-in on Splunk and am making it my floagship tool/platform/dashboard for all things InfoSec. Currently have a splunk ninja building it out. Can't WAIT to learn how to do more than just basic searches on it!

    Are there alternatives (to the classroom or staring at the keyboard & screen) to learning Splunk? Something like workbooks or pdfs to walk through? Is there a particular book that helped anyone out?
    Thanks,

    There's a book called Dive Into Splunk, Google can find the pdf for you. It's free (the PDF, but you can buy the book on Amazon.) Authro's name is Carasso.

    I really like working with Splunk - very powerful and so much more flexible than the other SIEMs I have used. I have taken a couple of the official classes and they were pretty good, but I have learned mostly by just using it. You can get a free full functional version, so no reason not to spin up a VM, install it, and start sending some data. Also, the splunk site has a ton of info - always get a few hits when I am looking for info on something.

    i thought the one hour course was free, "What is Splunk (eLearning)"
