I have setup the Splunk Add-On for Linux and setup collectd on a host. I can see the index growing with events. I have setup a dashboard made up of pre-defined panels for CPU, memory usage etc. however I see nothing on the dashboard.
There are no hosts listed in the drop down.
Hi - thanks for the tip, is that the recommended app for monitoring linux host information? I'm a bit behind on my Splunk knowledge so I'm not familiar with the Splunk app for infra app.
If that is an easier method of gathering CPU, memory, etc from a collection of hosts I'm all for using that method over collectd/write_http.
Yes, Splunk App for Infrastructure can do the Linux monitoring using collectd but has a bit more polish than the app you are trying to use.
Furthermore it can assist in installing collectd/has built in dashboards
