Hi guys, I'm a very intermittent user of Splunk Enterprise 8. I tend to build dashboards for a team to display on their floor and then walk away for 6 months until a new use case comes up. Recently had to do a migration of 200 forwarders from an old Splunk 6 instance to a new Splunk 8 one. I spent a huge amount of time checking with sysadmins what the role of various hosts was (i.e. what role the actual server was i.e. web server, DB server etc.).
So my question is:
- Can the hosts in Splunk be tagged with metadata to describe their function?
