Getting Data In

filter event app not taking effect

Explorer

my goal is to eliminate the following event from being indexed as it is killing our license.

Could not ungzip\. Heartbeat will not be working\. Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream

So i created filterEventApp/local under /opt/splunk/etc/apps on all our indexers and created a props.conf and transforms.conf files under them

props.conf

 [source::/opt/liferay/.../apache-tomcat-7.0.21/logs/http.log*]
TRANSFORMS-set=setnull

transforms.conf

[setnull]
REGEX = Could not ungzip\. Heartbeat will not be working\. Unexpected end of ZLIB input stream
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

But after restarting indexers, i still see these events being indexed. Wondering if there is anything wrong with my approach.

2nd qq, will the filtering be triggered for only the specified source?
