Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux: How to get memory usage information?

Hi,

I have installed the add on Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux (Splunk_TA_nix) on my system.

I want to know the % of memory used and memory available.

Which script should I enable inside it to get this information? (I strongly suspect it is hardware.sh)

Thanks,
Deepak

i think its vmstat,
here is an event example:

  memTotalMB   memFreeMB   memUsedMB  memFreePct  memUsedPct   pgPageOut  swapUsedPct   pgSwapOut   cSwitches  interrupts       forks   processes     threads  loadAvg1mi  waitThreads    interrupts_PS    pgPageIn_PS    pgPageOut_PS
         11911       10274        1636        86.3        13.7  13714855820          0.7     3786262   561279655   557733268   550175067         222         428        0.30        0.00       1095.02       2025.87      15150.25

Create an index called os on your indexers, create this file on your forwarders:

./Splunk_TA_nix/local/inputs.conf

And add these lines:

[script://./bin/vmstat.sh]
disabled = 0

Then restart splunk everywhere and enjoy.
