Monitor remote directory

Path Finder

I want to monitor a directory that resides on another machine which has a Splunk forwarder on it. There is one specific directory which needs to be monitored and I cannot find the proper documentation which points me towards it. Can someone please tell me how to do this via the GUI and the config files?

Re: Monitor remote directory


The easiest way, simply add your directory you'd like to monitor on your forwarder through the gui prior to enabling it as a forwarder.

If you've already done set the machine as a forwarder, simply follow the cli instructions for adding an input. Below is the link to the page in the documentation you're looking for:
