How Splunk Is Using Pulsar IO

Thur Jun 17, 1:15 PM - 1:50 PM, PT

At Splunk, we have made the decision to deprecate a home-brewed platform that powers the DSP's (Data Stream Processor) connector framework in favor of a framework that is powered by Pulsar IO.
In this talk, I will go over our evaluation and decision process on choosing to use the Pulsar IO framework. I will also discuss how the Splunk's DSP product is leveraging the Pulsar IO framework and especially batch sources that was recently added to Pulsar IO. I will conclude the talk with discussing the various improvements that we at Splunk have contributed to the Pulsar Functions/IO framework to increase scalability and stability. In my final remarks, I will also discuss how we intend to leverage and use Pulsar IO/Functions further in the future at Splunk.
