Why am I Unable to extract fields from package source type on (splunk_TA_*nix)app?

Hi,

I'm trying to create a report that has information about all the hosts with the kernel version and OpenSSL version and SSH version. The package.sh (sourcetype=package)script on the Splunk_TA_*nix app fetches all the information but the issue is I'm not able to extract fields from the  sourcetype=package.Any help is appreciated

I just try with my lab env and here this works as expected.

index=os_unix* sourcetype=package NAME IN (openssh*, kernel*)
| table NAME VERSION RELEASE
| dedup NAME VERSION RELEASE

I have installed TA nix on source system and also on my SH.

Hi @Anu,

did you extracted the logs?

if yes, you can use the search from @isoutamo, if not, you can add to this search a regex extraction:

index=os_unix* sourcetype=package NAME IN (openssh*, kernel*)
| rex "^(?<NAME>[^ ]+)\s+(?<VERSION>[^ ]+)\s+(?<RELEASE>[^ ]+)\s+"
| table NAME VERSION RELEASE
| dedup NAME VERSION RELEASE

Ciao.

@isoutamo  The query is not yielding any results in my environment. I suspect it is because the NAME field is not extracted.

Hi @Anu,

if you don't have the NAME field the main search will always not have results.

Anyway, good for you, see next time!

Ciao and happy splunking

Have you installed TA..nix also on your search head and check that i5 has shared globally? 
Your index is probably something else than os_unix*? If you don’t know the name try

index=* sourcetype=package system OR openssh 

If you haven’t have TA…nix installed, you should install it onto SH too and share it globally. That will enable this and other field extractions, tag and eventtypes to your use.

Another option is use that rex which @gcusello predented.

I have installed the TA*nix app on search heads as well,my index is os.I can see the results when i do the basic search index=* sourcetype=package but when i add NAME IN i dont see any results.Attached the screenshots for reference.

And you have check that it's sharing is Global and status enabled?

When I look your output, it shows that your onboarding is not working correctly. Your query should return something like this

Please check that you have also this Splunk_TA_nix installed on your UF + Indexer / first full enterprise instance counting from UF.

Hi ,

The query started working after upgrading the app to the 8.10 version.

 

@isoutamo , @gcusello Thank you for the help

@Anu Can you double check the index name which you used while configuring this add-on?

if the index name is correct, give index=* and see if it fetches any results.
