Hi,

I would like to use the add-on Protocol Data Inputs but I am unsure where should it be installed (meaning if it must be on every indexer part of a cluster --> master server ?) Or install on a dedicated server like Heavy Forwarder.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for your quick answer.
I have another question following your answer. My aim is to have a centralized component masking data for all my servers (+2000) so if I can avoid deploying the add-on on every single host is better and also not impacting the servers where the forwarders run. Do you think it's possible to install the add-on on a Heavy Forwarder and having the UF sending the data to this HF which will handle the data ?

Yes that is possible.
UF -> forward raw TCP -> PDI App's TCP Port running on HF
