Welcome to the Splunk Blog from bridge:com

Many of you will already know me, I’ve been around the country on numerous projects over the last few years and have seen quite a bit from stand-alone Splunk servers to very global multi-site installations. And even though I’ve been working with Splunk almost daily since 2011, there are new questions and different, exciting challenges with every project. For a long time I’ve wanted to share these experiences with other Splunkers, and in the spring of 2020 we finally managed to go live with the Splunk Blog. In the posts here, we will explain issues related to infrastructure and architecture at Splunk, but also highlight aspects of searches and visualizations.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at

Enjoy reading and happy Splunking!
