Splunk App/Add-on for Unix and Linux not collecting data

Splunk Enterprise 6.5.1 installed for Indexer/Search head single instance server
Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux 5.2.3 installed on a remote Linux server w/ UniversalForwarder installed
Splunk App for Unix and Linux 5.2.2 installed on Indexer/Search head

When i restart the universalforwarder after installing the Add-on on the remote linux server, I do not see an os index created on the indexer as suggested by the documentation.

I also copied the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nix/default/inputs.conf to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_nix/local/inputs.conf and enabled a few stanzas.

When I open the App from Splunk web, it just shows "Waiting for results.." and I don't see any data or even the host.

I am also getting the message: "Received event for unconfigured/disabled/deleted index=os with source="source::cpu" host="host::limelight" sourcetype="sourcetype::cpu". So far received events from 1 missing index(es)."

Do I need to manually create index=os somewhere?

Index has to be created on the Indexer/Search head. If you have installed the app/add-on on the indexer, you have to restart the indexer also to reflect the app.

Please check the following.

  • Is there an indexes.conf inside the /apps/Splunk_TA_nix/default and contain stanza with [os] ?
  • Have you restarted the indexer after installing this add-on ?

I was not aware I had to install the add-on on the Indexer as well. Issue resolved.
