Hi @asmafirdous,
you can index:

  • every type of text files,
  • script outputs,
  • database queries,
  • WinEvenLogs,
  • PerfMonitor,
  • syslogs,
  • SNMP,
  • other sources using pull clients (e.g. eSteamer).

For more infos see at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.2/Data/WhatSplunkcanmonitor or https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.2/Data/Getstartedwithgettingdatain

Summarizing each kind of text file.

the port depends on the source (e.g. using Forwarders ususlly 9997, syslogs usually 514, etc...).

Ciao.
