Deployment Architecture

Scripted Input - Script calling another script

I have a scripted input, top20.sh, calling another script - top.sh.

inputs.conf

[script://./bin/top20.sh]
interval = 60
sourcetype = top
source = top
index = linux
disabled = 0

top20.sh:

#!/bin/sh
./bin/top.sh | head -n 20

I am not getting data. Running top.sh works fine. Am I assuming the correct relative path? Any other reasons why this is not returning data?

The following worked on top20.sh. Not 100% sure, but I believe the modification gets the path of the calling script:

#!/bin/sh
`dirname $0`/top.sh | head -n 20

No, the script will actually be run with the filesystem root (/) as its working directory, so you'd have to provide the full path to your other script in order to execute it successfully.
