I have outputs.conf in my Universal Forwarder at \etc\system\local\ , I am monitoring some log files gave the monitor path in inputs.conf.
Now just like we mention in props.conf about time stamp parameters,
Can i update the same here in Outputs.conf at SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local\ ?
[sourcetype / source]
DATETIME_CONFIG = none
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = true.
Will i be able to get data cooked with these parameters?
No.. outputs.conf will only tell the forwarder where to send the data
You should also look into moving it away from etc/system/local and put it in an app instead. Reason being, if you ever had to scale the number of servers with a UF installed, you would need to use the deployment server which drops files in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/<APP-NAME>. If you have it in etc/system/local then those outputs will override what you sent via the deployment server
