Getting Data In

How do I get splunk to forward logs from a docker file?

Hi, I currently was testing my splunk forwarder through a RedHat Centos7 virtualbox. It was originally reading from a excel file, but now I am trying to get it to read from our dockerfile. I downloaded docker in the vm, but how do I proceed from here?

Thanks.

Are you trying to send container logs to Splunk? If so, use Splunk's HTTP Event Collector (HEC) to receive the data stream instead of monitoring a file:
