am doing POC on host metrics using Splunk App for Unix and Linux
i have installed *Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux on my 5- forwarders and indexer* and enabled scripted inputs.
i have installed *Splunk App for Unix app on my search head*.
i can see events when i perform search . the problem it is not extracting fields.

thanks in advance
The main reason for this is that you are using search mode of
Smart instead of
Verbose. Look under the timepicker value on the very right and set it to
You might want to check the btool pulls you get from your various devices. You might have some conflicts with where you have installed the *nix apps.
In the link above you can read where your apps are in precidence order. If you wish, upload a debug btool pull for your inputs and outputs files and post them here for further help.
thanks for your response.
you mentioned conflicts, can i know what conflicts i may come across??
btool pull for inputs that i have enabled for app and outputs for??
Some of the conflicts you would like to look for is for example, in the inputs .conf btool pull. You may have some files living in the $SPLUNK_PATH/etc/system/local directory, if this is the case the local directory will take precedence over the apps and not allow your apps inputs in this case to take effect because of the configuration file precedence.
To see a detailed breakdown of the btool pulls something similar to below:
$SPLUNK_PATH/etc/bin/splunk btool inputs list --debug
This should show you the list of everywhere the inputs configuration files live that is built into the running Splunk config.
