Cribl Search: The New Frontier —-> This is the tag that the leader of our Global Cribl User Group, Rich Mahlerwein, gave the meeting we held on December 13th. It is a fitting and wonderful title as we expand into a new chapter at Cribl. Searching but with the data staying at rest. What a wonderful idea, and so many questions and thoughts about the possibilities.
Lucky for us, we were joined by Dritan Bitincka, one of the co-founders of Cribl. Dritan was able to join the Global User Group to talk to the community about what Cribl Search is and what it looks and feels like. During the meeting, he was able to demonstrate searching internal logs, files from Edge nodes, and files from an S3 bucket. All of the searches were with the data still stored at the original location without having to send it to a central repository and without building a schema for the data. A replay of the Global User Group can be found at this link or you can watch it using the embedded video below. While you are there, you can find past meetings on the Cribl Community YouTube channel.
Additionally, we announced that the meeting times will be changing. We are moving the meeting time up by 3 hours. This is to help to make it easier for people not in the Americas to attend. We will still meet on the second Tuesday of the month but the times will now be 10 am US/Pacific, 1 pm US/Eastern, and 9 pm UTC. The UTC time will change in conjunction with the US/Pacific timezone. The meeting has been updated in the Community Calendar. If you’re not in the Cribl Slack Community, we’d love to have you join! It’s the best place to chat with fellow Cribl customers and our employees.
