Developing for Splunk Enterprise

What is the difference between '/opt/splunk/bin/python' and '/opt/splunk/bin/splunk cmd python'

Hi,

I am having a strange python behavior in my Splunk environment :

When I run a script with Splunk python as:

/opt/splunk/bin/python my_script.py

it fails. But when I run same script as:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk cmd python my_script.py

it works. This is really a strange behavior to me.
My questions are:
1. Why first option does not work?
2. What can I do to load 'Splunk cmd python' in my django environment.

Hi shrirangphadke,

  1. it does not have the Splunk environment variables set
  2. if you can source /opt/splunk/bin/setSplunkEnv in your django enviroment it will run the script as well

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk is actually a wrapper which load the setSplunkEnv and starts the later command.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
