I have indexer clustering environment with 1 master, 2 indexers (peer nodes) and 1 searchead
I want to send logs from machine with UF to splunk through conf files
I created new index with repFactor = auto.
My question is, I specify two indexers or only one in outputs.conf?
It has benefits - if you really cant afford to ever loose events, but it can cause duplication. It also puts more load on the UFs, and can cause slight delays, but these are probably negligible for most UFs
It makes a lot of sense if your network is 'questionable' but if your indexers and forwarders are on a 'good' local network, its probably not necessary.
