Command Modular Input

Splunk Cloud
This is a Splunk Modular Input for executing commands and indexing the output.

It is quite simply just a wrapper around whatever system commands/programs that you want to
periodically execute and capture the output from ie: (top, ps, iostat, tshark, tcpdump etc...). It will work on all supported Splunk platforms.

The Python code in this App is dual 2.7/3 compatible.
This version of the App enforces Python 3 for execution of the modular input script when running on Splunk 8+ in order to satisfy Splunkbase AppInspect requirements.
If running this App on Splunk versions prior to 8 , then Python 2.7 will get executed.

For details of the support we offer for our Apps , browse to : https://www.baboonbones.com/#support

This App is fully AppInspect passed for installing in your own hosted Splunk Enterprise environments or on your own hosted Splunk Forwarders and forwarding the collected data into Splunk Cloud.
