Importing logfiles from the local file system?

New Member

I'm Running Splunk with Modsecurity on a box running Apache and Modsecurity.

Do I have to use a forwarder? Or can I use "Data input" or some other setting
To import the data into the module. Directly from the filesystem?

It just seems a bit weird to send it someplace else and then back again! Tell me it's not so.

Yes, absolutely, you can index from the local system. Look at the monitor: keyword in inputs.conf.
