log hostname in metrics.log

New Member

In a distributed deployment on the indexer in metrics.log there are logged 2 fields: sourceHost and sourceIp. In my setup they are identical. The IP is logged in both fields. What do I have to configure to log the hostname as well (on the universal forwarders I think)?

Have you tried to modify the following in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/server.conf :

[general]
serverName = <ascii string>

Yes serverName is set to hostname in server.conf. We although set the hostname in inputs.conf (host = ).
