How to host Cgi-bin web pages on my splunk server ?

New Member

Hi,

I am using Splunk 6.1.3 to display syslog dashboard on a centos linux server. It works great !

On this server, I have also another network tool called netdbtracking. It relies on html and cgi-bin pages.
Rather than setting up and using another apache instance, I would like to use the embedded splunk web server to process the netdb's cgi. Is it possible to do that ?

I have already followed the following http://answers.splunk.com/answers/4290/create-a-custom-web-page-for-the-splunk-web-server-to-host.ht... but without success...

Anyone could help ?

Regards,
Ju

That answers link is for static pages, yours are dynamic... Splunk supports the execution of custom Python controllers, so that might require at least some wrapping, if not rewriting of your cgi programs.

I can't find any docs on that, but you can for example look at etc/apps/splunk_datapreview/appserver/controllers for examples - not 100% sure if that's present on 6.1.

Than you for your answer.
Finally, It was easier to add an apache instance to run my perl script.
