Is there a way to find which forwarder a devices event logs came from.
I have hundreds of devices sending WEC logs through WEC servers, I could really do with an easy method to pinpoint where they came from during search time.

Something like
Index=wec_index
| ctable hosts,  WECSvr

Hello,

You could use the below search and also you can track it in cloud monitoring console.

index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd group=tcpin_connections | stats first(version) by hostname

 

 

Thanks
