I have to install a Splunk server and a universal forwarder (as a syslogserver). To the UF, I send data from the firewall, switches and access points.
I use the native log forwarding methods from the devices to send the data to the UF.
Now I have to create some dashboards, including when a device is reachable, down, critical...(ping?)
Or also the bandwith from the firewall...
For these, I want to use the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux on the UF, and then the APP on the Server.
Is it possible to send the data from the device to the UF (with Add-on installed) without installing a UF on the firewall or switches?
Or is there maybe a preferable way to deploy it, with another app or something?
Thanks for your help!
