Getting Data In

Why am I unable to get data from the forwarder to the Splunk application?

New Member

Hi Team,

I have installed the 6.4.3 version of the universal forwarder on a Windows server 2012. But i am unable to get the server data from the forwarder to the Spunk application.

Below are the details of the data present in the three configuration files.


host = gmwcnappv00150

disabled = 0

I need the data from the forwarder server gmwcnappv00586 to be reflected in the splunk application server gmwcnappv00150
Kindly let me know the comment as earliest

you're missing an inputs.conf stanza for a Universal Forwarder sending to your indexer.
Something like this:

 compressed = true
 disabled = 0
 connection_host = none

You could also write:


if gmwcnappv00150 is your UF.

Did that help?


Edit: typo
