I've below Splunk architecture in my environment.

Universal Forwarders (Linux and Windows) -> Heavy Forwarder -> Indexers (cluster)

I want to know where the index-time field extraction will happen?

  • On Heavy forwarder
  • On Indexers
  • On both (in this case, will indexer overrides the fields extracted by HF?)

 

Are there any specific properties in props/transforms which execute on a specific component in a distributed environment?

Hi

if you have HFS on path then extractions will happen on the first non UF Splunk Enterprise instance (HF - IDX, if there are several HFs on lane then the first one is the correct place).
