I read a little and came to know Splunk DB Connect uses JDBC driver to fetch events.
It means Indexer or HF would be requesting these events from table at certain interval.
Does Splunk DB Connect need UF??
no you need a Splunk server with GUI, you can use Indexre, search Head or (better) Heavy Forwarder, you don't need a Universal Forwarder.
