Splunk Standalone forward data to syslog

We have a relatively small Splunk implementation - just 1 standalone server. We're downloading Cisco Umbrella logs from the Cisco-managed S3 Bucket for reporting purposes.

We now have the need to also forward those umbrella logs to a syslog server in addition to leaving them on the standalone for reporting. Is there a way to configure a standalone to forward to a syslog server?

Hi mpuchalski,

Please read this https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Forwarding/Forwarddatatothird-partysystemsd#Sysl... it can be configured on any Splunk instance. Just a word of caution: if you configure forwarding to a third party receiver and the receiving end goes down or is not available you will get in trouble on your Splunk instance.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

With this standalone instance, I have multiple apps receiving data.  I only want 1 index to fwd to an external syslog server.  Is that possible without a heavy forwarder?

Thank you. What is the trouble that Splunk will experience is the receiver is not available?
