Today we are happy to announce a new addition to the family of our applications, that helps you to monitor your infrastructure in Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud. We have released Monitoring Linux application together with collectorforlinux package, built on top of Collectord forwarder.
We have found that a lot of our customers are still using bare VMs for large workloads, databases, or legacy software. Migrating these application to containers maybe be challenging, so we decided to help monitor these workloads as well.
As usual it takes less than 10 minutes for initial setup, and you will get the application logs, metrics from the host and processes running on this host and network activities. You can easily configure forwarding logs from any custom location on the host.
If you already have a license, you can start using Monitoring Linux right away, each installation on the host counts as one licensing host, just make sure that you are within your licensened capacity.
