Where to make configuration changes in inputs.conf and outputs.conf on Linux?

New Member

Hi Team,

I have installed Splunk setup on one of my VM. On another VM I installed the Splunk universal forwarder to send the logs to Splunk Server.

I copied to make changes for inputs.conf and outputs.conf files to local folder to make changes because on default folder we shouldn't do changes.

So, they were so many attributes to make changes in both files. I am in confusion state.

Please tell me the basic values like where to insert host , source, sourcetype names, monitor file names, index name, etc in inputs.conf and where to give Splunk Server or Indexer IP, port number in outputs.conf.

Because i am setting up my test environment so that I wont do mistakes in my production environment .

Thanks & Regards,
Ravi

It's hard to say where to start. Maybe at List of configuration files
