Looking for Installation instructions for Splunk iSeries app

New Member

Hi

I'm looking for installation instructions on the iSeries app:
http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/24097/splunk-for-as400-iseries

Has anybody installed this app?
Is it installed on iSeries posix shell?

Thanks

Nothing is installed on the iSeries. You FTP the logs from iSeries to somewhere Splunk can access and then index them with Splunk. Splunk does not have any native software for the iSeries yet. Just install the App on the SearchHead once you have the files indexed.

Thanks dmaislin_splunk

i had thought I'd found a splunk agent capable of being installed on unix shell on iseries here, but alas no. Could be something the for the splunk roadmap.
still its pretty useful in its current form.

cheers

Maybe some day we may release a forwarder for ZLinux, but I am unsure of the most current status of that project.

@dmaislin
is this not the correct app for as400 - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/633/#/overview?

Thanks in advance
