You are using {myhostname}:8000, which is connected to splunkd @000 at on Wed Apr 20

I checked with the file if it is in running root.
It would be helpful

Any idea how to resolve it would be helpful

What does it mean "using {myhostname}:8000 connected to splunkd @000 at "? Is it a universal forwarder or Splunk enterprise?

I tried to login to splunk interface and I got an error:

Return to Splunk home page

And at the end :

You are using :8000, which is connected to splunkd @000 at https://:8089 on

To answer to your question , its splunk enterprise which I have configured as heavy forwarder
