Builder

To add a forwarder the forwarder manager you must specify the deployment server by executing:

splunk set deploy-poll <IP_address/hostname>:<management_port>
splunk restart

I assume you solved:

01-27-2015 14:12:44.726 -0500 ERROR ArchiveContext - From archive='/opt/splunkforwarder/etc/apps/TA-nmon/var/nmon_repository/bhcx27_150127_1357.nmon':  python: A file or directory in the path name does not exist.

But for anyone else who hits the issue, this will happen if python is not installed (as is typical on AIX servers), the props.conf of the nmon application can be overridden to use the perl interpreter:

[source::.../*.nmon]
unarchive_cmd = $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/TA-nmon/bin/nmon2csv.pl

# To manage repositories archives of cold nmon files (add you own for other compressed formats)
[source::.../*.nmon.gz]
unarchive_cmd = gunzip | $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/nmon/bin/nmon2csv.pl

The above normally defaults to python.

The official documentation for the nmon app is here:

The application itself lives here:
