Upgrading a single machine's instance of Splunk is easy. All we need to do is stop the instance, download either the .tar or the .rpm, and then either untar or yum install the package, restart Splunk, and voilà, we have an upgrade!
There's a lot of data out there and once we put it into Splunk, there's a lot of interesting information we can pull out of it, so why not have a trip down memory lane and see what sort of songs pop up when going through the Billboard Hot 100 charts from now back to 2000?
First, I found a scraper for the data - thank you Allen Guo for your Billboard charts scraper - and output the data in this format:
date | title | artist | weeks | delta | current | peak | previous | spotifyID
I did so with this python...
