HEC Input on a existing and used Heavy Forwarder?

Path Finder

Hi all,

I am using a Heavy Forwarder for a few API related integration Methods of various data sources.

I have to consider an integration with HEC Integration now for a new source.

Is it possible to use a Heavy Forwarder and add a HEC input to it? Or should a HEC be a seperate machine?

It depends on how busy the HF is, but it should be able to handle a HEC input.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
