Estreamer index goes into main how to change it...

New Member

Hi,

By default if we do nothing eStreamer eNcore data and information goes directly into the main index

How can i change that in a cluster environnement.

Thanks

I am not a splunk expert. I am sure there is a slicker / better way to do it but this works for me. I did this on my heavy forwarder that feeds an index cluster.

I copied this from
/opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-eStreamer/default/inputs.conf

Where data is written to
[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/TA-eStreamer/data]
disabled = 0
source = encore
sourcetype = cisco:estreamer:data
crcSalt =

I added this to /opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-eStreamer/local/inputs.conf to overide the default
[monitor://$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/TA-eStreamer/data]
disabled = 0
source = encore
sourcetype = cisco:estreamer:data
crcSalt =
index = cisco

My cisco:estreamer:data is now going to index cisco instead of index main
