The scope of your question is very broad, I think to answer it we need more specifics. What are you using nxlog and emite for, and what do you hope to achieve by sending data to splunk (or sending it from splunk to the other tools)?

Have to monitor logs From THE NXLOG, ZENOSS AND EMITE. Actually for integrating emite I did not find any app in Splunk store. For integrating nxlog, zenoss and emite with Splunk is there any process?

I know by using will fetch the logs but I don't want that. Have to integrate and monitor the logs.

Hello, I found on the nxlog site, the integration steps for splunk: https://nxlog.co/documentation/nxlog-user-guide/splunk.html
nxlog can output to a file, and sub-directories based on the source. A splunk UF/HF can monitor these and send them to the indexing tier. set the host to the path segment where the files are being written (the directory created for each source should be the hostname of the source). that way, splunk will assign the correct host to each event.
