Persistent queues splunktcp

New Member

Persistent queues are not available for splunktcp,
I use several Forwarders on networks n, sending to a central forwarder on network A, from here all data goes to a central indexer, I would like to use persistent queueing for dataloss prevention.

TCP/UPD/Syslog will work but not splunktcp.

Is there a way for getting this to work?

SylviaB - How are you trying to set this up? What sort of error message are you getting to say that it isn't working? I have it working currently using the following syntax

[splunktcp://9998]
persistentQueueSize=100GB

We are also searching for more information regarding the usage of persistent queues for splunktcp.
We want to avoid for example data loss during splunk update, where you need to stop the index cluster in case of major version update.
So you will loss "live data" like it comes for excample fron the windowsTA and or unixta (CPU, Ram, disk, etc.)

According to http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Data/Usepersistentqueues:


Persistent queues are not available for these input types:

Monitor
Batch
File system change monitor
splunktcp (input from Splunk forwarders)

Is the above mentioned option recommended, documented and supported from splunk?
