Is There a Forwarder for AS400?

Right now, I'm manually creating reports in Excel for AS400 data buy the hour. I'm looking for a way to automate this data, and, preferably, am looking to use Splunk.

I see that there is an app, but if there is no Forwarder for AS400 there will be a gap with getting the data in automatically.

Is There a Forwarder for AS400?

Thanks In Advance!

We do what @kristian.kolb said. The data we needed from the AS400 is log based, we just setup a script to forward the data from the AS400 to a port that we listen to on a heavy forwarder.

Is it a python script you use to forward the data?

No, there is no forwarder for AS400.

Perhaps it's possible for you to export the log files by some means (scp, ftp, sftp, syslog, mounting a share and writing logs there). That way you can have a forwarder monitoring the location where the files get written, and send it to Splunk.

Also, if someone has another solution, I'm open for ideas
