There is almost always a Splunk app to help you forward logs in. For example, you can use The Splunk Add-On for Linux and Unix get get OS-based details from *Nix machines: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/833/

Hi @yelinaung. Can you say more about what you are trying to accomplish?

If you want a way to write a log file every month you can use cron with a script of your choice assuming you are on Linux.

https://crontab.guru/every-month

Splunk has scripted inputs with a Splunk forwarder that can run every month. So each forwarder could write a log file each month.

Tell us more what you are trying to do.
