How to load balance between the indexers for Outcold and Monitoring Kubernetes collector setup to ingest data?

@outcoldman, we are using Monitoring Kubernetes App and Outcold collector Setup to ingest the data, but is there any way to have load balancing between the indexers, because right now, the servers ingest to only one indexer using random-with-round-robin - choose random URL on first selection and after that in round-robin on each failure.

Thanks.

@sathwikr076 there are several options:

  1. Setup a Load Balancer in front of your indexers. See http://dev.splunk.com/view/event-collector/SP-CAAAE73
  2. You can specify multiple HTTP Event Collector endpoints with the collectord. https://www.outcoldsolutions.com/docs/monitoring-kubernetes/v5/splunk-output/#using-multiple-http-ev... Every instance of collectord will choose randomly one from the list.
