Server Metrics in Splunk

Path Finder

I would like to monitor the key metrics of some servers I have on Splunk, what should I do?

Ex: CPU, Memory, Swap, Load, Disk Usage, Processes, Network Interface Utilization, Network Latency (Ping), and others.

If you already have a model ready for this type of monitoring, can you give me?

First thing is to have the Universal Forwarder installed on the servers you want to monitor the host performance.

You can then push the "Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux" to collect the data if this a Nix environment. For Windows environment you can push Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows TA to collect the OS data.

Refer to the add-on documentations as how to deploy the app in distributed environment.
