Getting Data In

Can you disable indexing for a heavy forwarder and use it only for parsing data?

Engager

Is it possible to disable all indexing operations in a heavy forwarder and use it exclusively for data parsing?

I need to transform the data and forward it to another splunk instance, without any indexing in the forwarder.

Thanks

By default it wont index. Unless you set it true.

indexAndForward = [true|false]  
* Index all data locally, in addition to forwarding it.  
* This is known as an "index-and-forward" configuration.  
* This attribute is only available for heavy forwarders.  
* This attribute is available only at the top level [tcpout] stanza. It cannot be overridden in a target group.  
* Defaults to false.
