Getting Data In

Indexed logs and subset of logs into different indexes

Hi All, I am onboarding data from a heavy forwarder using Splunk TA.  Is it possible to

1) index all logs into one index and route to group A indexers 

2) index subset of logs into another index and route to group B indexers?

Thanks.

Hi @splunkrocks2014,

yes it's possible but in this way, you pay twice the subset of logs sent to both the indexers.

Anyway, to route a subset od data to specific indexers see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.2/Forwarding/Routeandfilterdatad#Route_inputs_to_sp...

Ciao.

Hi Giuseppe, thank you for the quick reply.  There is another challenge that I can only use one input from the TA to pull all events.  Need to break down the events to different indexes and groups of indexers.

Hi @splunkrocks2014,

I know that you can use only one input, infact you cannot use two inputs on the same files because they don't work!

So you have to manually modify your outputs.conf as described in the above link and then modify the TAs containing the inputs to only one group on Indexers.

Ciao.
