Getting Data In

HTTP Event collector

Path Finder

Hi  @gcusello ,

I am curious to know why I am able to see  HTTP Event collector under the Data Inputs on my Indexer where there is no HTTP Event collector on Search Head.

Apart from @gcusello already said (that you see available input types; notice that count for most of them is zero), your deployment seems strange.

You have webui enabled on indexers - that's not very usual. In case of a cluster you typically deploy config with apps cluster-wide.

And you have inputs defined on search-head. That's also not very typical. I'd set up a heavy forwarder for that and leave search heads to do searching.

Hi @rahul2gupta,

In the available Data Inputs you have all the possible ones even if not enabled, but what's the problem?

could you better describe your architecture?

You have some Indexers and one or more Search Heads.

Then you enabled HEC Collector on one of your servers, which one: IDX, SH or HF?
