Whitelist Services? How

Path Finder

How do you whitelist services you wish to monitor and not forward redundant ones to the Splunk Server....

I've done before on WinEventLog but however not sure how to use WinHostMon or WMI to whitelist, will apperciate if someone has working configuration that whitelist/blacklist services

You can find how to monitor WinHostMon at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Data/MonitorWindowshostinformation

See type attribute to set which service to monitor.

Example:

# Queries computer information.
[WinHostMon://computer]
type = Computer
interval = 300

# Queries OS information. 
# 'interval' set to a negative number tells Splunk Enterprise to
# run the input once only. 
[WinHostMon://os]
type = operatingSystem
interval = -1

For WMI please check http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/6.6.3/Data/MonitorWindowseventlogdata.

Example:

[WMI:AppAndSys]
server = foo, bar
interval = 10
event_log_file = Application, System, Directory Service
disabled = 0
