Getting Data In

How do you parse a log with one JSON object per line which is being sent by a forwarder?

Explorer

this solution worked for me for log files that are on the same machine as the splunk server. But when I started forwarding logs from a universal forwarder on a separate machine to the same server, the same props.conf and transforms.conf setup no longer parses out the timestamp. When do props.conf and transforms.conf get applied? Do the raw log lines get forwarded to the server, where they are parsed with props/transforms? Or do I need to apply props/transforms on the universal forwarder machine?
