How Splunk collect DATA??? : Does splunk copy data from machines....or
it collect them and after delete data from the source machine?
Can i ask u a question, do you really answers his question ?
Every organization follows different style of on boarding,
we all know the documentation "how to add the data" this doc sucks not much helpful.
Please be careful with replying to posts from 5 years ago.
The newer documentation from the Getting Data In manual is completely relevant to the question.
If you are unhappy with the documentation you can provide constructive feedback via the link at the bottom of the page for the documentation...
