Good day everyone, How are you?
Im using Splunk Enterprise 6.3.2 for the first time. after installing it, i set up 3 forwarders to draw performance data from a few servers of mine and it works.
What i need right now, which i couldn't figure out how to do is - Set up Remote Windows Host Monitoring in order to get server uptime from my other servers and create a dashboard that will nicely display that for me going from the ones which have been up the shortest time to the longest.
So, how do i get those servers' uptime please?

Thank you.

Im sorry sir, I've already read this and chosen to implement forwarders on the servers i wish to get Uptime from, yet the forwarders only draw basic logs from the servers, and i dont know how to get their Uptime using these logs alone, am i missing something?
