Our organization has Splunk Universal Forwarder installed on the same server our SAP Business Objects server is installed. We have SAP Business Objects logs in two folders:
Is there a way to point the Splunk forwarder to those folders to collect those logs? Or, if it is already doing so, is there a way to returns just the logs from those folders in a search?
Hi @SlothB77 how did you SAP BO logs onboardng go? We are looking to do the same. Do you have any tips for this and did you have to write any custom props/transforms?
You can set up a monitor in your splunk forwarder's $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/inputs.conf to monitor the log from the folders . Sample configuration
sourcetype="type of your log"
index="index you want to use for these logs"
setting_n-1 = value
settings_n = value
Details are in http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.2/Data/Monitorfilesanddirectorieswithinputs.conf
Once you have the logs in splunk , you could just search for the source or sourceype what you have used above.
source="path to SAP enterprise log" OR source="path to tomcat log"
