Does Splunk for *nix App support HPUX?

I installed the Splunk *nix App on my HPUX and enabled the inputs, but no events are being index. I'm wondering if the *nix is supported on HPUX.

I made the following changes for file system space monitoring on HP-UX:

Installed di-4.28 (enables features from gnu-df).

Added the following lines into common.sh:

"xHP-UX")

;;

Added the following lines in df.sh

elif [ "x$KERNEL" = "xHP-UX" ] ; then

assertHaveCommand mount

assertHaveCommand di

CMD='di -f Stbuv1M -x nfs -x devfs -x swap -x cdfs'

FORMAT='{size=$3; used=$4; avail=$5; usePct=$6; mountedOn=$7}'

I would rather not rewrite the remaining scripts, as I have done th emost important one for us. When can we expect support for HP-UX?

Currently, the *NIX app currently supports only the following: Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, and MacOS X.

However, if you edit the Scripted Inputs, then one could add in support for HPUX and AIX as well, if they wanted to.

The various scripts are located in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/unix/bin directory.

It is on our roadmap, stay tuned.

Will the *NIX app get updated for HP-UX in the next minor revision?

Another vote for supporting hp-ux ithe scripts out of the box. We will probably work on it soon, but having it included would be best so we wouldn't need to worry about it upon upgrades.

Not sure I would say we get a LOT because typically someone running HPUX or AIX can probably figure out how to update the existing *nix app to run their version of the Scripted Inputs on their respective OS.

I do, however, think those running on HPUX or AIX would appreciate it if we officially supported *nix on those OSes so they don't have to maintain it as we upgrade and also so they don't feel so left out.

Mav, are we getting lots of requests for UNIX App on HP-UX? Or more requests for AIX?
