How to forward the event of a specific index on the heavy forwarder to the specified index of another indexer?

Communicator

I have a separate Splunk Enterprise instance, The 9997 port has been enabled to receive events from each host and set up their own index for them。For example: apache_access, secure ect .....

now , I want to convert it into a heavy forwarder and forwards these events to an indexer cluster.

So the question is coming,

How do I forward the event of a specific index on the heavy forwarder, (for example: apacheaccess) to the specified index of the indexer cluster (for example: webapache_access)

Example:

apacheaccess (from heavy-forwarder) ————————>Forward TO ————>webapache_access(indexer clustering)

You only need to enable heavy-forwarder
As long as the heavy-forwarder and indexer clusters have the same index name.

For information on how to enable heavy forwarder, read the documentation: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.1/Forwarding/Deployaheavyforwarder
