Developing a front end to SPLUNK

Hello

We currently run an application that uses a standard 3-tier architecture.

Web - App - Database

All this on Windows Server.

We have pulled in the logs from the web and app server to a Splunk database.

We would like some monitoring of said application and there are multiple vendors that can so this. Of course, these vendors also want to charge us a lot of money!

I was thinking of developing a front end to Splunk that can parse the logs and display exactly what we need in graphical form.

1. Errors pertaining to users

2. Bottlenecks

3. Systems down

... you get it.

Is this possible? What sort of API's does Splunk expose?
