Setting phoneHomeIntervalInSecs

Path Finder

I need to set this for my Windows deployment clients only. Can I add this entry to the WEB.CONF or can I only add this to the DEPLOYMENTCLIENT.CONF?

If so how does it have the same impact on my HF, INDEX?

I want my Windows UF client to on poll every 6 hours instead of a minute since I will have 12,000.

Thanks!

You do make this configuration change in deploymentclient.conf on the forwarder itself, or for extra credit you can/should configure different classes of servers as necessary by having the deployment server itself push an updated deploymentclient.conf with the most appropriate setting per class.

so if I have a windows server class, a Indexer class and a HF class and I want this setting to only apply to my windows server class how would I setup the stanza in the deploymentclient.conf on the deployment server ?

Refer to the Splunk documentation for specifics, but the general idea is you would create an app in deployment-apps on the deployment server, say, windows_forwarder_phonehome, that contains deploymentclient.conf.

Then you create a server class that defines which hosts you want to configure (in this case probably a filter for all windows hosts), and add this app to the serverclass.

Further explanation without specific questions is getting a bit too close to "teach me to use a deployment server", but hopefully the above gives you an idea of what you're looking for.

Thanks, That helped.

My understanding from the documentation is that this setting needs to be made in deploymentclient.conf for each UF.
