which mode does  the splunk  forwarder support  ? If  push or pull mode is all supported, we want to know how to configure   the different mode,and  the  disadvantage and  between them?

Thanks

Hi @wangmang,

Universal Forwarders immediately send their logs to the Indexers if there's a connection with them.

Indexer only answers to the connection so the only configurable mode is push.

If there isn't any connection, the UF caches its logs until the connection is again available.

Ciao.
