Getting Data In

How to input data from perl script to splunk?


Hello guys, I am new to splunk and I am trying to input data from a perl script.

Script is very simple, a that prints "timestamp hello world". (running the script from command line output the correct string...

I have already added the script to splunk/bin/scripts and created a script data input configuration on the UI (generic_single_line results). When searching for data though i get a No results found. / 0 events.

Any help on what I am missing?


Hi lemmerich,

try running your script from the CLI

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk cmd $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/scripts/ 

and see what happens. Next check index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd for any message related to Check the inputs.conf and verify the index setting for your script and search the index over all time.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
