Splunk App for Infrastructure monitor the OS of the server it is running on

Explorer

I have Splunk 7.3 running on an Ubuntu box. I just loaded App for Infrastructure to monitor other linux hosts and want to monitor Ubuntu on the localhost. How to configure App for Infrastructure to do this?

I did as suggested and deselected all of the log files to be monitored and ran the script on the local host and it did install collectd. However, it is still not an entity that can be monitored.
In the App for Infrastructure under Settings, I see the local host IP, and can investigate this server, but there are no cpu, disk, etc data for that host.

  1. What do you get when you run this search:

| mcatalog values(metric_name) WHERE index=em_metrics AND host="put SAI entity name here"

  1. Any error message in /etc/collectd/collectd.log ?

You can just run the script from "Add Data" page on the localhost. I guess you can "Deselect all" the log sources so that you don't have to install UF for logs on the localhost. This will just install collectd (No install_uf.sh). You can set up local log monitoring manually on the Splunk Instance.
