|About: Splunk Inc. (SPLK)|By:, SA News Editor

The Splunk App for Stream (SPLK -2.1%) captures streaming wire data in real-time from data center and networking hardware, and allows companies to filter and correlate the data as they see fit. (PR)

Splunk, which already offers plenty of other tools for capturing/analyzing machine data, sees potential use cases for the wire data offering in app management, IT troubleshooting, security (e.g. threat detection/analysis), and business analytics.

The app is the fruit of Splunk's December acquisition of network data capture startup Cloudmeter. Splunk's FQ2 report is due on Aug. 28.
