We have 2 Windows Servers (2008 and 2003), the Universal Splunk forwarder continually stops, every few hours.
Where should I be looking to see what the cause is.
Any known fixes or issues?
checking in the windows event application event logs, the splunk modular powershell.exe would die.
common logging error
but also my server has a local.meta path issue.
If that happens periodically I would check the Windows Event Logs
What version of the UF? Are there any messages in $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log around the time of the failure? What about in the windows event logs?
