Getting Data In

How to redirect some SNMP data to a new index?

Contributor

We have SNMP data being sent from a heavy forwarder to our indexers into an index that we'll call cacti.

We want SOME of the data (specifically traffic data) to go to another index. My inputs.conf on some test logs (fake data) is set to send data to the main index with a sourcetype of cacti:test1.

I've done a test that looks like the following with zero luck (These have been placed on the Heavy Forwarder):
TRANSFORMS.conf:

[IndexRedirect_traffic]
REGEX = rrdn\Straffic
DESKT_KEY = _MetaData:Index
FORMAT = index::cacti_traffic

PROPS.conf:

[cacti:test1]
TRANSFORMS-indexredirect = IndexRedirect_traffic

Looks like I had an issue with my REGEX, and it worked after the REGEX fix.

Thanks!

Try this for transforms.conf entry.

[IndexRedirect_traffic]
 REGEX = rrdn\Straffic
 DESKT_KEY = _MetaData:Index
 FORMAT = cacti_traffic
