Hi,
Our oracle database is residing on HP/UX v11. Is there forwarder agent supporting HP/UX platform? If not how do i implement to pull log files to Splunk repository?

Thanks

While the HP/UX forwarder was deprecated with Splunk 7.x, there are various Splunk 6.x universal forwarder packages for HP-UX v11 depending on your platform. See: https://www.splunk.com/page/previous_releases/universalforwarder

These will not be officially supported after the release of Splunk 8.x (whenever that happens), but they may still work. See Splunk's support policy: https://www.splunk.com/en_us/legal/splunk-software-support-policy.html

You'll also want to keep an eye on the compatibility between Forwarders and Indexers as you upgrade your indexing tier, as certain features may not work with an older forwarder, but for raw events no problem: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Forwarder/latest/Forwarder/Compatibilitybetweenforwardersandind...

As you mention an Oracle Database, DBConnect may also be an option, where you would have JDBC connectivity from a different host to the database, but it may not be the logs that you are looking for.

Depending on what you want from the system, you may not need a forwarder NOR to map a network drive. Are you trying to access the system or the database data specifically?

I will check the links as mentioned but for now think mapping network drive seems to be simpler.
Thanks for your help

From the manual:

There are universal forwarder packages
available for all platforms except
HP/UX

You could:
- put those files on a file share and mount that file share an a supported system
- send your logs via syslog, if supported
- maybe other workarounds I didn't think of
