All Apps and Add-ons

Why is the fit command resulting in error "Failed to find Python for Scientific Computing Add-on..."?

On either Splunk 6.4.3 or Splunk 6.5, I have both the latest Machine Learning Toolkit 2.0 and Scientific Python 1.2.

The apps are enabled, I am admin, the permissions are good.

Splunk search that fails:

index=main  | fit

Error:

Error in 'fit' command: Failed to find Python for Scientific Computing Add-on (Splunk_SA_Scientific_Python_linux_x86_64)

The error message indicates the Python for Scientific Computing Add-on is not installed properly.

Can you double check the app installation, specifically:

  1. It is the right PSC bits on your platform, that is Linux-64bit in your environment.
  2. PSC is installed to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/, and has unchanged name, that is "Splunk_SA_Scientific_Python_linux_x86_64" in your environment.

You may need to reinstall PSC and restart Splunk.

It's okay. I was able to figure out how to install this. It's a bit odd that dependencies like this are not automatically managed.

Thanks! Yes we have 64 bit Linux but I had called the app dir Splunk_SA_Scientific_Python_linux and not Splunk_SA_Scientific_Python_linux_x86_64.

I renamed the dir to the correct _x86_64, restarted Splunk and the error went away.

Thanks yangzd!

I'm facing the same error. Also in my case, the name of the folder is correct as mentioned above. Using MLT 3.0 & PSC 1.2. Have done uninstall and splunk restart several times - no help.
