Getting Data In

How to send data to multiple indexes?

Hello Experts..

Configuring the inupts.conf file I am trying to send data from the same windows log to multiple index's for separate dashboards. I think some sort precedence is blocking some of the data.

Here is what I was trying to accomplish. Is there a better way to get where I'm trying to go?

 

[WinEventLog://Application]
disabled = 0
index = WINDOWS
start_from = oldest

[WinEventLog://System]
disabled = 0
index = WINDOWS
start_from = oldest

[WinEventLog://Security]
disabled = 0
index = WINDOWS
start_from = oldest

######## Separate to send USB bus traffic ##########

[WinEventLog://Security]
disabled = 0
index = USB
start_from = oldest
whitelist = 1234,4321,5467, etc

[WinEventLog:/Microsoft-Windows-DriverFrameworks-UserMode/Operational]
disabled = 0
index = USB
start_from = oldest
interval = 1000,1001,1002,1003

The current approach won't work because Splunk combines the settings for each stanza name.  In the example, all WinEventLog:Security data will go to the USB index because it is specified last.

The better method is to not even try to separate the data by index.  Like data should be in the same index and separated at search time.
