I have basic input for udp://514 with index=network setup as the default index.
We started taking syslog traffic from ESXi though. I'd like anything that comes in with the hostname of host=*vmware* to go to the index=vmware.
I am drawing a blank on this. Any help ?
You'll need to configure this in the parsing phase. The indexer is essentially also a heavy forwarder so this applies here as well.
