Help with downloading App in zip format



I would like to deploy the Metricator App. For that I need also the TA-metricator-for-nmon (technical Add-On) on my source where the universal forwarder is running.
How would I get the TA-metricator-for-nmon in the zip form to shift it to my source linux host?

I mean I downloaded the Metricator App from the Splunk Base, deployed it on my SH and it also includes the TA-metricator-for-nmon, so I can monitor my SH itself. I can also see on the OS level under the ~/etc/apps the directory called TA-metricator-for-nmon. But I need this App (TA) on the source systems with the forwarder.
Would I just tar and zip the TA-metricator-for-nmon directory from the SH and copy it to my source system?
Is it as simple as that?

Kind Regards,

Yes, it is as simple as that. I would skip the zip step, however, and use the -z option in tar to compress the tarball.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
