Unix and Linux integration requirements in ITSI for collectd
These are the requirements and compatible software for *nix integrations for Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) entity integrations for collectd. For information about data you can collect with this integration, see *nix data you can collect with ITSI.
If you want to collect data from a system running SELinux, see Collect data in ITSI with SELinux.
*nix integration operating system support
*nix integrations support only 64-bit operating systems.
You can collect metrics and log data from the following operating systems and versions:
|Red Had Enterprise Linux||6, 7, 8|
|CentOS||6, 7, 8|
|Debian||7, 8, 9, 10|
|Ubuntu||14, 16, 18, 20|
|Fedora||25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32|
|Solaris||10, 11 (x86_64 only)|
collectd support for *nix hosts
ITSI uses collectd to collect metrics data from *nix hosts. Collectd is an open source daemon that collects system and application performance metrics. For more information about collectd, see A Beginner's Guide to collectd on the main Splunk website.
For information about how ITSI uses collectd for each operating system, see collectd package sources, install commands, and locations for ITSI entity integrations.
ITSI entity integrations are compatible with these versions of collectd:
Required *nix dependencies
You need these dependencies on each *nix host you want to collect data from:
Docker (no orchestration) data collection requirements
You can monitor Docker containers on a Linux system you didn't deploy with an orchestration tool like Kubernetes or OpenShift. You can't monitor Docker containers on a Unix system.
These are the Docker requirements:
- Docker version 1.18 or later
- Docker API version 1.20 or later
