I can't find any documentation regarding the best deployment scheme for this. Looking at the configs I'm thinking:
Any thoughts? Am I correct in my assessment?
Side note: The Splunkgit tag is not recognized in the "tag" search on the sidebar.
You seem to be on the right track. But you still need to know couple of things -
Would I actually need to remove the indexes.conf file from from the heavy forwarder? I have indexing globally disabled. AFAIK leaving it there would serve no purpose, but would also cause no harm.
Well there are 2 things -
1 - If you enabled ALL data forwarding from HF to Indexers, you don't have to worry about having the indexes.conf on HF. On the other hand if the forwarding is not enabled, you would end up indexing data in HF (which you probably don't want)
2 - If the App has a UI for defining the inputs, and if you are planning to use it, you may need the indexes.conf.
Hope that helps.
