I was wondering how to implement some kind of alert inside Splunk to identify those devices that have stopped sending remote syslogs to Splunk platform.
I will have a more proactive alert than the one I have at this moment. I am checking, for example, every 24 hours that no alert was sent by the device. But my question is, is there is any solution, like hearbeat or Keep-alive solution, for checking to see if I have problems with communication between the device originating the log and the Splunk infrastructure? I will appreciate any idea on how to implement a solution for this problem.
