Filter _internal events that get forwarded

Path Finder

My company has a lot of small, independent offices that have a handful of machines in each locations. The problem is there are literally hundreds of locations, many of them rural with low bandwidth.

I'd like to filter what gets sent to index=_internal by the UniversalForwarder. I know that a Heavy forwarder can do that, but I've already provisioned thousands of Windows machines with Splunk and the _internal index is clogging some of the pipes. Any suggestion how to get just warnings and alerts for _internal instead of bandwidth-filling info events?
