Getting Data In

Does anyone have reference material on the inputs.conf for MAC OSs and how to get the events into Splunk?

I'm a Windows guy working with Linux trying to get MAC OS events into Splunk.  We don't have many MACs where I work, but we do have some.  Does anyone have reference material on the inputs.conf for MAC OSs and how I get the events into Splunk?  The Splunk UF is installed, but I need to know more about what to monitor on MAC OSs.

If those logs which you are interested are normal file based logs then collect those as any other logs in unix platforms.
