Description

It may be possible to make this input with system Python with a small change to the modular input class. Currently, it uses make_splunkhome_path from splunk.appserver.mrsparkle.lib.util which won't be available on system Python. I could make that optional though.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/AdvancedDev/ModInputsIntro says:

Note: The Splunk universal forwarder does not provide a Python interpreter. If you intend to run the examples on a forwarder host, verify that a Python interpreter is installed on the host or, if necessary, install one.
