Known issues for Splunk App for Infrastructure

The Splunk App for Infrastructure version 1.4.0 has the following known issues.

Date filed Issue number Description
2019-08-15 SII-5268 write_splunk does not support Collectd 5.9.
2019-07-29 SII-5041 The search for Docker entities may fail because the search is hard-coded to check a specific index.

Workaround:
Send Docker metrics to the em_metrics index.
2019-07-26 SII-5030 The easy install script may fail for Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS if the universe repository is not enabled.

Workaround:
Run these commands to add the universe repository before you run the easy install script:

sudo apt-add-repository universe && sudo apt-get update

2019-07-26 SII-5022 Splunk Connect for Kubernetes stops collecting the kube:objects:events:watch sourcetype.

Workaround:
Manually edit the objects deployment that SCK spawns. 

1. Update the image to kube-objects:1.1.2. {code:java} kubectl -n splunk edit deploy sck-1.2.0-splunk-kubernetes-objects{code} {code:java} image: splunk/kube-objects:1.1.2

        imagePullPolicy: IfNotPresent

        name: splunk-fluentd-k8s-objects{code}  2. Save and exit. This will cause the pod to roll over and deploy the new image. 

2019-07-09 SII-4876 On CentOS systems, the easy install script does not update the universal forwarder.

Workaround:
The script errors out at the last command in *bash install_uf.sh*. The command errors out because it's setting up something that's already been set up. Running the remainder of the script continues the installation:
  • bash install_agent.sh && cd .. && rm -rf unix-agent && rm -rf unix-agent.tgz*

You can add *|| true* to the script to avoid the error:

  • ... bash install_uf.sh || true && bash install_agent.sh && cd .. && rm -rf unix-agent && rm -rf unix-agent.tgz*
2019-07-07 SII-4845 Container logs are not being associated with pods.
2019-07-01 SII-4834 Power users can't write to the infra_alerts index.

Workaround:
Manually enable power users to write to the infra_alerts index.
2019-06-28 SII-4832, SII-4831 libcurl4 is incompatible with the write_splunk collectd plugin. This affects Ubuntu 18.04.

Workaround:
Replace libcurl4 with libcurl3.
2019-06-26 SII-4776 Uninstall script may not delete SplunkForwarder.service.

Workaround:
Run this command:

rm -rf /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/SplunkForwarder.service

2019-06-26 SII-4788 Kubernetes events objects stop being monitored after one hour.
2019-06-14 SII-4637 From the Investigate tab, when viewing entities in Tile view, uptime is displayed in seconds.
