Field extraction - limited interesting and selected fields

Hi,

Are there apps to help with the extraction of sourcetype = linux_syslog. I have hosts(solaris,rhel,etc) sending logs over udp on discrete ports and the limited fields and selected fields are really limited. Yes, I know it is not recommended to send syslog directly to splunk but this is will have to do until we can purchase hardware and setup a syslog server. Also, I am not able to install UF on these hosts either.

Any help is much appreciated!

The  "Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux" does not solve my issue and I can not install the UF on these hosts.

Hi @ezparra05,

did you tried with the "Splunk Add-On for Unix and Linux (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/833/)?

Anyway, see if you can use a Universal Forwarder is definitely very better than syslogs!

Ciao.
