Looking for the best way to collect Disk Free Space from a Linux box to a Windows Indexer. Company policy wont let me put a light weight forwarder on the host.
Would like to collect the output from a "df -h" and run this every x period of time and have the input collected into Splunk.
I know I need to run some Scripted Input from the host, but how will this work from a Windows Indexer?
Indexer - Windows 2003 Server Linux - Red Hat
Just curious what issue the company has with the light weight forwarder? Are there any changes Splunk can make to the LWF to make it compliant?
Anyway, here are a few ideas:
Additional suggestion based Dan's 1st suggestion. Rather than using
df -h, you could use the
df.sh script that's bundled in the
bin folder (if you allowed to place that on the linux machine). I think you could use the
plink tool in that comes with Putty (ssh client for windows). You could also use the Putty Agent to store ssh keys for the whole auth thing.
