      Grafana vs Splunk opinions
      Some users think Grafana is a great alternative to Splunk, some don't.
      Grafana is NOT a log monitor. It is only a graphing solution for logs and metrics from many different data sources but you will need solutions to get those logs and metrics in the first place.
