Hi neboutl,

Yes, you can install Splunk forwarders to monitor files and directories on KVMs.
For information about deploying Splunk instances - including indexers, seach headers, and forwarders - inside virtual environments,, please refer to this tech brief:

Hope this helps. Thanks!

Using library: libvir 0.10.2
