Is it possible to drop events at the source with a universal forwarder?

Builder

All,

Just reading:
http://blogs.splunk.com/2016/05/05/high-performance-syslogging-for-splunk-using-syslog-ng-part-1/?aw...

And it's mentioned that we can drop events at the source with the universal forwarder. Is this true? and how did I miss this!? Is this just normal props.conf/transforms.conf config?

thanks!

Legend

Only heavy forwarders can route or filter data at the event level. Universal forwarders and light forwarders do not have the ability to inspect individual events except in the case of file header extractions, but they can still forward data based on a data stream's host, source, or source type. They can also route based on the data's input stanza, as described below, in the subtopic, "Route inputs to specific indexers based on the data's input".
