Getting Data In

How do I alias the hostname and FQDN as the same machine?

I'm getting events that show sources as the hosts, but Splunk is indicating that the simple hostname and the FQDN are different sources. I want Splunk to know that the simple hostname and the FQDN are the same host machine and combine events to be from one source.

You could define a transforms.conf rule like this:

[fqdn_to_hostname]
SOURCE_KEY = MetaData:Host
REGEX = ^host::(.+)\.company\.com$
DEST_KEY = MetaData:Host
FORMAT = host::$1

and apply that to all relevant hosts in props.conf like this:

[host::*.company.com]
TRANSFORMS-fqdn = fqdn_to_hostname
