How to configure the Splunk Add-on for NetFlow to report the hostname of the device forwarding data, not the heavy forwarder the add-on is running on?


Hello All,

I was curious as to how to get the Splunk NetFlow Add-On to report the specific host of the device that is forwarding the data instead of the heavy forwarder which the add-on is running on.

    host = source = /opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_flowfix/nfdump-ascii/nfdump-csv_20150714102355.log sourcetype = netflow

All entries have the host as splk-gns-fwd-01, just want to make sure we get the host filled with the originating host not the forwarder.
