Hi @umeshcreddy,

let me understand:

  • do you want to know if you're receiving logs from that HF
  • or do you want to know if the logs passing through the HF arrive to the Indexers?

in the first case run on Search Heads  the following search:

(index=_internal OR index=*) host=HF_hostname

 If instead your HF is a concentrator and you want to know if logs are passing, list the hosts that are sending logs anche check if there are the correct list of hosts with a simple search on Search Heads:

index=_internal OR index=*
| stats count BY host

Ciao.

Giuseppe

@gcusello  cant we check in the deployment sever in the forwarder management for the HF_hostname whether deployed or not.  I have this doubt can you please confirm

Hi @umeshcreddy,

to check if HF was deployed by Deployment Server is a different thing: it's not relevant Ds to understand if an HF is logging or not.

Ciao and happy splunking.
