Monitoring Splunk

_TCP_ROUTING not exclusive?

I want to add monitoring of a file and have it forwarded to a splunk server separate than my usual indexers. So I added

[monitor:///new/file]

_TCP_ROUTING=testGroup

to my inputs. It's indexing on the server listed in testGroup just fine. BUT it's also still forwarding to my defaultGroup. How can I forward this particular file to just the testGroup, and not defaultGroup?

Typically you need a default group for that:
Add this to your outputs.conf
[tcpout]
defaultGroup=nothing
disabled = false
indexAndForward = true

"Note: If you want to forward only the data specifically identified in props.conf and transforms.conf, set defaultGroup=nothing."
