As it is .conf week you’ll excuse us for a shorter tech tip this week. This tip still fits right in with our focus on energy and how we can use Splunk to inform and educate.

This .conf21 session (just released this week and available On Demand) details a Splunk4Good project where the energy production and consumption of a school is monitored through a series of dashboards. The speakers talk through the project aims, how they got the data required and the dashboards they built for the school.

It’s around 30 minutes long and well worth a view to see the art of the possible.
