Getting Data In

How can I send logs from one universal forwarder to two different indexers depending on the logs type?

Communicator

I am planning to send the logs to multiple Splunk indexers (location) based on the logs type from one universal forwarder

example

    server-1         myapp1.log  -> indexer-South
                     myapp2.log -> indexer-south
                     myapp3.log -> indexer-east
                     myapp4.log - > indexer-east

   server-2         myapp1.log  -> indexer-South
                     myapp2.log -> indexer-south
                     myapp3.log -> indexer-east
                     myapp4.log - > indexer-east

can this be done? I would like some feedback how to do that.

thanks

Hi,

yes you can do this.

You need to create two output.conf stanzas

[tcpout:south]
 server=server_south:9997
 [tcpout:east]
 server=server_east:9997

Then you need to do a TCP_routing in inputs.conf

[monitor://path/myapp1.log]
 _TCP_ROUTING = south
[monitor://path/myapp3.log]
 _TCP_ROUTING = east

Hope this helps. You have to create a input stanza for each log in this example. But can also do the matching via Regex to reduce the amount of input stanzas.

kind regards
