How to confirm if Netflow or other data is being collected under the app:"splunk_app_stream"

New Member

On my Splunk Cloud instance, there is an app called: "splunk_app_stream" that is currently disabled under the 'App' settings.

Before I go uninstalling this app, I would like to know if there is a way to confirm if Splunk is ingesting data for that app before uninstalling it (even though it's disabled)?

1) Navigate to Stream App -> Admin Dashboards -> Stream Forwarder Status dashboard. Check the status of the Stream forwarder. Also, check the Total events dashboard. From there you can identify whether stream app is indexing data or not.
2) In the Search bar, run this query sourcetype= stream:*. If search query returns no result, then Stream App is not indexing any data into Splunk.
