Getting Data In

What are some best practices for Splunk universal forwarder?


My Splunk Forwarder inputs.conf looks like this:

index = myapi_local
move_policy = sinkhole
disabled = 0
source = myapi
sourcetype = Api


My logging files are generating every second . Is that perhaps a little bit too excessive? What's the best practice in using the Forwarder?

File name examples:

MyAPI_2022-12-08 23-06-28.json

MyAPI_2022-12-08 23-06-29.json


Thanks! 🙂
