The trick is to reduce your log volume. I use a number of parsers that
filter and summarize logs before pushing them to the central NMS
server and placing them into the splunk queue. Works perfectly and if
there is a need to analyze a specific problem we can always go back to
the machine with the source logs for further investigation.
