It has started, but is worried about seemingly low ulimit values. To see if splunk is still running see this command's output:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk status

Side note: If this is a full Splunk instance (Search Head, Indexer, ...) and not just a forwarder then do seriously consider running it on Linux rather than AIX.

Thanks Martin for the reply!!
I got the below after running /splunk status

"/splunk/bin# ./splunk status
splunkd 23855388 was not running.
Removing stale pid file... done.
splunkweb is running (PID: 17105070)."

So i am confused.But when i give ps cmd I am seeing as below.

17105070 1 0 20:52:44 - 0:11 python -O /cots/2.0/splunk/splunk/lib/python2.7/site-packages/splunk/appserver/mrsparkle/root.py start
