Hello,

I am not getting events from the uptime.sh which gives system date and uptime information via the shell command. This script is a part of Splunk Add-On for Unix and Linux which is installed on the universal forwarder. I am getting data from other inputs like cpu.sh, vmstat.sh, df.sh etc...but not only from uptime.sh. I check the disabled is also set to false and in sync with other stanzas like the stanzas of cpu,vmstat etc. Any insights into if I am missing anything?

Check the bin folder see if there any scripts which have different permissions than those of working ones.

You should try to run this script as user which are running UF client. Also try it with splunk cmd …../path/to/script. Then if/when needed fix reported errors.

If you are run it with "splunk" user and with command 

/opt/splunkforward/splunk/bin/splunk cmd /path/to/script/uptime.sh

And get answer then it should works.

Have you gotten anything into _internal logs on that client? Check also local log files under ..../splunk/var/log/splunk

I checked with the permissions of the script in the default folder. It is exactly the same like others.
