Getting Data In

Archive raw and/or indexed data to external syslog server

Hi all,

Our Splunk server is getting data through several channels, e.g. universal forwarders, TCP input (e.g. OPSEC LEA of Checkpoint data), SNMP, DB connection, etc.). We hope to make a copy of these data (either raw or indexed) to external server (e.g. syslog) for long term archiving.
We're looking for any recommended solution. Would anyone please help?

Thanks a lot.

Hi stwong,

you can easily use Splunk for long term archiving ( see https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.0/Indexer/Setaretirementandarchivingpolicy ) you don't need to use an external system.

Anyway if you want to use a third party external system, you can forward all logs to an external system using syslogs ( see https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Forwarding/Forwarddatatothird-partysystemsd ).

Bye.
Giuseppe

I think that you can backup and save it on a file server etc.

Thanks, but we hope to forward to-be-fronzen data to external server (e.g. a syslog server) for archiving.
