You will first need to create a list of all the hosts in your environment and use that to create a lookup file (csv file should have a field called host)

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/SearchReference/Lookup

ONce you have the lookup, you try this search

| inputlookup hostlist.csv | field host | search NOT [| metadata type=hosts index=*]

Hi sravankaripe,
If you want to know host that don't send log the solution from @sundareshr is perfect.
If you want to have a table with all the host and the indication of which are sending and which aren't sending you could use something like this:
|inputlookup hoslist.csv | eval count=0, host=lower(host) | append [ search index=_internal | eval host=lower(host) | stats count by host ] | stats sum(count) AS Total | rangemap field=Total severe=0-0 low=1-1000000000 default=severe
In this way hosts with severe aren't sending and host with low are sending.
You could also add a graphical representation using

script="table_icons_rangemap.js, stylesheet="table_decorations.css"

that you can take from the Splunk 6.0 Dashboard Examples App (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/).

Bye.
Giuseppe
