Splunk Search

splunk query

Contributor

I found the following Splunk query that tells the local disk space. Is there a similar command that I could use to query stats like diskspace from another host. (I know how to do this through SSH, however I need the splunk'd solution.) Thanks!

[root@splunk bin]# ./splunk search "sourcetype=df | multikv | dedup host,Filesystem | rex field=UsePct \"(?\d+)\"" admin:changeme

/dev/sda3 ext4 46G 6.1G 37G 15% /

/dev/sda1 ext4 248M 47M 189M 20% /boot

You could put a forwarder on said 'remote' server, install the *NIX app on it and have it feed your indexer File System usage information via the sourcetype 'df'...

Then, you could see all of your servers at the same time...just sayin...

Will the Unix application work on a universal forwarder? The objective is to have Splunk perform a few simple remote queries.
