Splunk_TA_nix on EC2 Instances

While playing with EC2 instances, I have the Splunk_TA_nix app deployed. The cpu.sh returns nothing because sar and mpstat are not found on the EC2 host.

I understand that Linux has other ways to pull in system metrics, but things are obviously simpler if the same Splunk_TA_nix could be used everywhere I have *nix.

Anyone solve this quirk?

@Burch - you've already hit the nail on the head... just install the war package on the system and the problem is solved.

Oh, so manually install sar or mpstat? I was hoping we were just missing some other cpu command from our cpu.sh script 😞

Building off my own sillyness and expanding on @wvonalt answer:

Looks like it's as simple as yum install sysstat
