KB 159 - "NIPING" built-in data collection not working.

Category: Problem

Priority: Normal

Platform: Splunk Enterprise

Version: 1 from 01.08.2022


The Splunk app’s built in NIPING data tool is not collecting data.


A deprecated function (ResultsReader) is being used in the Python scripts for NIPING’s built-in collection tool for release 7.0.0.


Open the Python script file located at $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/BNW-app-powerconnect/bin/

Change the function ResultsReader to JSONResultsReader and add the key-value pair “output_mode”: “json” in the kwargs_oneshot object inside the get_instance_names function.

Save the file.
