multiple forwarder instances on same server

Explorer

Hi

Does anyone know if the steps in this article:

http://wiki.splunk.com/Community:Run\_multiple\_Splunks\_on\_one\_machine

apply also for installing multiple universal forwarders on linux?

It can. One way is to install one forwarder with a package based manager, and the use the tarballs and just unzip and go.

cp splunkforwarder.tgz /tmp && cd /tmp
tar xvfz splunkforwarder.tgz
mv splunkforwarder/ /opt/splunkforwarder_second_instance
/opt/splunkforwarder_second_instance/bin/splunk start
