Getting Data In

How can I forward a particular event ID to another host?

I have a scenario where I need to forward a particular event ID to another host. Can I use the universal forwarder for this, or do I need to configure something in Splunk to forward that? I'm a little new to Splunk, but have it up and running on Linux.

Thanks in advance!

You'll want to configure forwarding from your indexers if you want to send to either another Splunk system or as TCP or Syslog. If you need to reformat the data, for example by exporting to ArcSight, you can use the Splunk App for CEF.

Thanks. This event id is going from Splunk to another Windows host with a syslog listener.

Are you just trying to forward only a single event ID to one location or are you trying to send everything somewhere and also send one event ID to another location?

Everything is going to Splunk from my Windows servers. I need one event ID to go to another separate system that is being monitored in real time :).

How does the other system want the data?

Syslog format is fine
