Publishing data from my localhost to UDP port


I have opened a UDP port in splunk system and we have configured an index with it. How can i check if the UDP port is available to ingest/parse data in splunk. I need to test it via localhost.

Hi @juhisaxena28 ,

If you have access to the CLI on Linux, you can check if the port is listening using the following command:
netstat -lvn | grep ^udp | grep <your port number>

You can send test data to the port using the following command (let's say the UDP port is 5151:

echo $(date +"%F %T") - INFO - TESTING UDP INPUT > /dev/udp/localhost/5151
echo $(date +"%F %T") - INFO - TESTING UDP INPUT > /dev/udp/
