. please help on this
SELECT * FROM “exec” WHERE “command” = ‘uname -a’
What do you get when you run uname -r in the command line of the target host?
Maybe you need to specify location of that function: /usr/bin/uname
Etc wherever it is located?
Uname -r command is used to get the kernel details.
For example if i want to get the output of lmstat command (which is used to get licence properties). I want this command output to be displayed in grafana dashboard.
What steps need to be done .
Not only this command if any other command i need to get the output in grafana dashboard what steps need to be done.
Please help me
No, I am asking you if you ran that command in the host you are scrapping data from what do you get, does it work?
Also did you try what was recommended
