how did you install topbeat? sparc doesn't seem to be supported by the go compiler.

topbeat uses OS specific methods to collect top-like data. I don't think solaris is in the list (source here:

Hi together,

I am kind staying in front of the same problem. Thing is, all the *Beats programms need GO as underlying language. And GO itself is, from what i found out on the internet, not supported for the SPARC architecture on Solaris boxes. It will work on the OpenSolaris flavour, with underlying x86_64 CPU, but, as I said, not for SPARC.
Hence I was not able to get any GO-related programs running on SPARC.

Hope to help,

maybe gccgo (most recent is said to be compatible to go 1.4.2, but beats currently requires 1.5.1) or llgo can be used for cross compiling. But only gccgo seems to support SPARC nowadays.

The go compiler seems to move towards SSA-based intermediate representation (used by llgo translating go compiler SSA to llvm SSA?) + there seems to be some interest on having MIPS supported (!topic/golang-dev/vNboccLL95c), but no idea about SPARC support.

Still topbeat uses OS specific methods to collect stats, but I can't find any Solaris in here.
