Capture historical data of processes in AIX


I am new to Splunk and was wondering if there is a way to capture the historical data of the amount of CPU or Memory that a process uses on AIX6?

Hi, I can't find Splunk forwarder for AIX 6. Do you have it?

You could use the Splunk App for Unix and Linux as it has scripts to do exactly this. Otherwise, you can replicate part of the functions by writing a script that captures this info using ps, sar, or another unix tool. Have that script use logger or the equivalent to send the results to a log file. Then either via syslog or a Splunk Forwarder, have that log file sent to your Splunk indexer. That's all you need to do!
