This may not be relevant, but I have had to use the trick of loading up 
the keyboard buffer with fake keystrokes to avoid starting multiple DOS 
command instances when running programs via batch files. It's an easy 
way to get the last program to exit in the current command shell and 
then start up again in the previous shell that initiated the batch file.


All of the data generated in your IT infrastructure is seriously valuable.
Why? It contains a definitive record of application performance, security 
threats, fraudulent activity, and more. Splunk takes this data and makes 
sense of it. IT sense. And common sense.
