Are your forwarders set to index AND forward, or forward only?

Alternatively, is there some mechanism whereby you could be capturing the same information twice, or forwarding it to multiple indexers? And what version Splunk are you running? Older versions will see the same data directed at multiple indexers as separately accountable.
