First few thing to do

  • Install Splunk and import sample data: Splunk is free to use as long as you capture 500MB of data per day. If you just study, it will be enough capacity. The computer to install is also compatible with Windows / Linux / Mac, and if you have enough resources of about 1core / 1GB, you can withstand it enough, and if you do not need it, you can turn off the service and no extra resources will be used.
