I do recommend it as a great resource as well. Just not sure you need to pay for it 😉
Author David Carasso does an excellent job of giving us a bit of Splunk history, and helps us understand how Splunk works, he does not force us to read the whole book to get value of out of this publication. One can use this as a tutorial, or a quick reference guide. Exploring Splunk explains a lot about the product, but more importantly provides enough examples in each area so that the commands you're interested in using are easy to follow. Whats really great about Exploring Splunk is nearly half of the book are "recipes" on how to accomplish tasks or "solve word problems" with Splunk.
If you didn't make it to the end, skip to it right now! Appendix E: has a great Quick Reference Guide that you'll use all the time. Well done!
I recommend this book to any "Splunkologist".
Still it was this book that helped me to map data without a timestamp and showed me examples of the true power of Splunk.
I feel I am now totally up-to-speed and on my way to become a Splunk expert!
This book condenses the learning stages contained on the Splunk site into a primer. Yes, a version is free on splunk.com for ebook readers. But I like having the paper copy in my hands. This is for Splunkers what Scott Kelby publishes for photographers: dense, to the point, and recipe format solutions. The "Chief Mind" covers lots of concepts, commands, functions, etc, and provides some real solutions for functionality, such as monitoring for devices that have not logged in a given window of time.

It started off interesting and then I got lost pretty quick. There's no new information in this book that I can't get at the Splunk website.Published 14 months ago by Consumer
Splunk is a great product, but the support you will receive is good through the evaluation face only. After you made the purchase, good luck getting any support. Read morePublished on August 6, 2013 by Jason
