You can forward your data to any other third-party software, for example a syslog server. For more information on how to accomplish that, you can use this link: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.4.1/Forwarding/Forwarddatatothird-partysystemsd

Thanks for your reply

one last question is it mandatory to use software for receiving?? can't we forward to a simple linux machine which listens on a specific port???

You can, but you will need something to translate this data being received. Anyway, since your linux machine is listening to the port you will receive data.
