Splunk Search

Largest files and its sizes in each Linux host


Hi, I'm looking to enlist the largest files per Linux host, i.e. if I have 6 hosts, all running on Linux let's assume, I would want to know the largest file for every six hosts, the largest file's sizes as well as the name/path of that largest file. Regards, Hisham

Splunk doesn't provide this functionality on its own; however, most of the solutions returned by a web search for e.g. "linux find largest files" can be implemented in Splunk as scripted inputs.
