Hi All,

I recently installed splunk to analyze the logs.
These logs were recorded in remote server.
I want configure the path to these log files present in log servers.

You should probably install a Splunk Universal Forwarder (i.e. an agent) on the remote host, and configure it to send its data to the Splunk indexer.

Then you need to configure the Forwarder to monitor the files you want to index in Splunk.

The Splunk Universal Forwarder can be downloaded from the Download section at It does not cost anything.

Hope this helps,
