Hi All,

Let's say I receive log data through TCP on UF, and I want to save the data in event index and metric index as well.
I create new source type and new metric index in order to save the data into metric.

  1. Is it possible to save the data in the event index(normal) and metric index at the same time?

2. With below configuration, the data is only saving on IDX. If I want to save the data into metric as well, how to do it?

on UF:
inputs.conf
[monitor://xxxxx.log]
index = event_idx
sourcetype = eventsourcetype

on IDX
inputs.conf
[splunktcp://9997]
