what is the best ways to disable the universal Forwarder Clients sending data to the indexer.
I tried deploying an apps with inputs.conf
to disable all inputs, so there is no data sending the indexer.
or could change the outputs.conf on the client using deployment server
want to able to disable the UF clients.
I think the easiest way to do this will be to disable the apps on the forwarders. On the deployment server, edit app.conf for each of the apps that are distributed to the UFs, adding the following
state = disabled
Then reload the deployment server so it will distribute the updated/disabled app to all the forwarders.
A disabled app is completely ignored, so this effectively disables all the
outputs.conf that are configured in apps. The only risk may be any UFs that have set inputs or outputs in
etc/system/local - hopefully there are none of those in your environment.
This stanza doesn't work, tried on UF 6.1.1 and Indexer 6.1.1
data still coming to indexer after pushed out the app, checked is on the UF client and restart the UF client but still getting data to the indexer
And this only disabled a particular apps in UF? IU?
i want to disable UF if it sending too much data or a least able to turn on/off as needed.
