Splunk to Make Search Splash
Former Yahoo Exec Leads Venture, Funded by Sevin Rosen

A new company called Splunk , funded by August Capital and Sevin Rosen will be led by Michael Baum, former VP of e-commerce at Yahoo, where he oversaw the 2,500 box environment that ran Yahoo Finance.

During his tenure at Yahoo, Baum found that his department's biggest challenge and operating cost was troubleshooting systems. The Splunk technology, available free at launch to individuals to beta test, lets systems admins search machine data exponentially better than anything else on the market right now, Baum says. "Basically (Splunk) puts search technology on log
files [and more] to get sys admins out of the awk/grep/perl script ghetto," a statement by the company says. "The goal is to make troubleshooting live production systems in complex IT environments as easy as surfing the Web."

In addition to the core engine, Splunk has developed specialized modules available as open source that optimize the search capabilities for specific software such as Apache, IIS, DB2, Oracle, Sybase, MySQL, Websphere, Weblogic, Jboss, Linux, Solaris, and more. The company can be found at www.splunk.com
