Hi Guys,

We have a remote site with a Splunk forwarder installed. How to check how many hosts are connecting (sending logs) to that Splunk Forwarder?

Thanks,

This app should give you all of the hosts that are connecting/sending data:
http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/22301/splunk-deployment-monitor

Deployment Monitor also has searches to alert you when a host stops sending data or if a host starts sending more/less than usual.

A search similiar to this should also work:

* earliest=-24h| dedup host | stats count

Hmm, now that I think about it this won't quite work for the explanation with the forwarder between.

Hosts are sending logs to the forwarder via lightweight forwarder.

How are the other hosts sending the data to the forwarder?
