Question about props.conf and light forwarders

If I want to use SEDCMD to rewrite values in my data, should it be configured on the forwarder or the indexer?

Thx.

If the forwarder is a heavy forwarder, full Splunk install, you can do it there. If not then you need to do it on the indexer.

I'm running Splunk 4.3.4. I'm finding that I need to define my line breaking rules and timestamp extraction on the forwarder. Doing it on the indexer doesn't work.

I stand corrected, it can be done on a lightweight forwarder.
