Splunk can do more than just index and search log files. Set up the Unix and Linux add-on to report CPU load of your instances.
- [Instructor] One thing you may have noticed…is that we're pretty limited in the types…of things we can monitor with this setup.…We're able to keep track of log files,…but what about things that aren't recorded…in a log, like CPU load?…Splunk can keep track of these things too,…using the Unix and Linux add-on.…We can go ahead and configure it now…from the Splunk server itself.…Just click on the app and we can go down here…and enable this cpu.sh.…
And I'm also going to set the interval…to five seconds, just so we have a little…more data to look at.…Scroll down to the bottom and click save.…Installing the add-on is a bit more difficult…for the remote machines running…the universal forwarder, but it isn't that bad.…First we'll go back to the home screen…and click find more apps.…And we'll search for Linux, and here it is.…It should be first or about first in the search results.…
And click on this link that says view on Splunkbase.…Now we just need to go to download…and accept the license agreement.…And we'll save the file.…
