I am new to splunk and learning it.
I have read the above document in splunk regarding routing and filtering of data ,Can someone please explain with an example in detail how the parsing,filtering and configure routing(configuration files) is done if possible..
Thanks in advanace
Hi chaseto, could you please explain a bit more what is not clear to you? Because the docs you linked include examples and detailed steps how to configure parsing, filtering ( http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/Forwarding/Routeandfilterdatad#Filter_and_route_ev... ) and routing ( http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/Forwarding/Routeandfilterdatad#Configure_routing )
I just want to know the overall flow start from uf to indexer with example so that i get a clear idea ,i am stuck near the conf files and how the data from log files is connected
On the UF you did set a
sourcetype for the log in
inputs.conf - did you? Use this sourcetype in your
props.conf on the indexer and reference a stanza from
transforms.conf , as well on the indexer. Restart Splunk after the changes to the conf files and any new data flowing in should be filtered and routed. If not provide all conf files please.
Hope this helps ...
