Getting Data In

Multiple index locations for forwarder

Is there a way on the universal forwarder to send different data types to different indexers? For example, we want to send logA to indexerA and logB to indexerB from the same system where the universal forwarder is installed.

Yes. Just specify index=theindexyouwanttouse in the monitor in inputs.conf.

My apologies, I missed that 'r' in 'indexers' 🙂

In that case my answer would be no. You could do that with a Splunk instance that performs parsing, but Universal Forwarders don't do that.

But the different indexes reside on different servers.
