You can check if the events from that host are (almost) evenly distributed to all indexers. Something on the line of:

index=yourindex (add more OR index=A OR index=B.. in case there are multiple indexes the host sends data to )
host=yourUFServer 
| chart count over host by splunk_server limit=0

There should be a column for each indexer and the values should be more or less same.
