Hi,

Is it possible to forward logs to indexer and at the same forward logs locally to a new file? I mean forwarder would crete a new file and put indexed data there..

Thanks

If you are question is , when the forwarder forwards a data to a indexer and these data will be forwarded into a different folder, then I am sorry this wont happen.

Forwarder only forwards the data to the indexer,you can forward the same data to multiple process, but you cant forward the indexed data to a different file or location.

I'm not aware of such a feature. Why do you need it? What problem are you trying to solve?
