Getting Data In

Can you give me some clarification on Monitoring _internal logs?

Hi Everyone,

I am new to Splunk. Here I am having some clarification on monitoring _internal logs.

I do have 4 IDX, 2 SHD, DPL, DPM, Master. Am I able to monitor the logs from those instances without using a universal forwarder (UF)?

We could use the UF to forward logs, but Splunk advises us to use one instance in one server.

Please Advice!

All of your Splunk instances (except the indexers) should be forwarding their internal logs to your indexers. They have the ability to forward logs without a separate forwarder. See https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/DistSearch/Forwardsearchheaddata

Thank you Mr.Richgalloway

Did those instances forward the OS logs without UF?
