We have a couple of servers from HP NonStop OSS environment which is not 100% Unix. Instead, OSS is “Unix-like” where most Unix commands will work in OSS.
I have got a requirement to forward the HP NonStop OSS application logs to splunk.
I have gone through the documentation but couldn't find any details. Can this be achieved?
What is the base for the OSS environment? If it is linux-like, is it based on a linux kernel? If so, what version?
In case you can't get a UF on the box, the next best option is to gather syslog from your OSS servers using a syslog receiver and UF. If they are linux-based, they should provide some documentation detailing how to set up syslog on them. Gathering syslog using Splunk has been documented in multiple locations (one is provided below).
<<What is the base for the OSS environment?>>
<<The OSS API conforms to the POSIX.1 and POSIX.2 standards, and partially conforms to the XPG4 specifications>> ... with extensions so that processes running under the OSS "personality" can more fully interoperate with processes running the native Guardian "personality", and vice versa.
