I've read that the Universal Forwarded is not able to forward messages to a Syslog server.
Although this TABLE says that it is possible to forward to 3rd party systems.
Could anyone clear this issue for me?
I would like to forward log entries from a Windows Eventlog Collector to a Syslog Server using splunk forwarders.
I have no idea if the uncooked data is in a syslog friendly format though.
The uncooked data is syslog friendly.
sample outputs.conf :
defaultGroup = default-autolb-group
server = splunkindex:514
It does send the universal forwarder logs too though, which could be messy ( and most of the events are multiline which syslog sees as multiple events )
All things considered, it might be easier to use snare
