The machine data generated by the various components of an IT environment offer a treasure trove of data regarding system operations and interactions, providing insight into current needs, pending issues, or historical trends. As such, the ability to read and identify patterns and anomalies in machine data can be used to detect security threats, manage IT compliance, avoid events that result in downtime, or improve system performance and IT resource deployment. For many organizations, the challenge is that the complexity and heterogeneity of their environments results in ongoing production of large volumes of disconnected data.
