Single Source of Data, Multiple Splunk Instances?


We have a single data simulator sending records to a socket, and a Splunk instance on a different server using that data. Can we have additional Splunk instances using that same data?

I have multiple Splunk instances, but not in this case. Here, I'm only thinking of piggy-backing this particular instance on the data input used by one of the others I have running.

Yes you can.
Use the forwarder outputs.conf to send data to additional Splunk Indexers below to different environments.

[tcpout:1st Indexername]

disabled = false

server = IPAdressof1stindexer:port


disabled = false

server =IPof2ndIndexer:portNo

Do you have multiple Splunk environments??
