*NIX App for AIX

Explorer

Hello All

  I installed Splunk (splunk-4.1.3-80534-AIX-powerpc.tgz) on one of our AIX server.

The above installation came with *NIX app bundled with it, but was in disabled state by default (after installation).

When I activated the *NIX app, it asked to configure different parameters like the frequency of polling etc., - which I did.

But even after the configuration, I don't see any thing under the *NIX app. No view/dashboard seems to work.

My question is whether *NIX app supported for AIX at all?

If it supported, am I missing some step to make it work?

I could successfully install and run *NIX app on many flavors of Linux.

Thanks in advance.

It appears to work now. I'm running Splunk 5 on AIX 7.1.

No, AIX is supported now - or at least, much more than it was before. See http://blogs.splunk.com/2011/11/07/splunk-for-unix-and-linux-an-update-and-an-introduction/

Jaci,

Thanks for confirming this.

I later noticed from splunk/etc/apps/unix/bin/common.sh that
only following OSes matching to "uname -s" are supported:

    "Linux"

    "SunOS"

    "Darwin"

    "FreeBSD"

Thanks once again for your answer.
