The following are the spec and example files for default-mode.conf.


#   Version 6.6.1
# This file documents the syntax of default-mode.conf for comprehension and
# troubleshooting purposes.

# default-mode.conf is a file that exists primarily for Splunk Support and
# Services to configure splunk.


# DO NOT make changes to default-mode.conf without coordinating with Splunk
# Support or Services.  End-user changes to default-mode.conf are not
# supported.
# default-mode.conf *will* be removed in a future version of Splunk, along
# with the entire configuration scheme that it affects. Any settings present
# in default-mode.conf files will be completely ignored at this point.
# Any number of seemingly reasonable configurations in default-mode.conf
# might fail to work, behave bizarrely, corrupt your data, iron your cat,
# cause unexpected rashes, or order unwanted food delivery to your house.
# Changes here alter the way that pieces of code will communicate which are
# only intended to be used in a specific configuration.


# The main value of this spec file is to assist in reading these files for
# troubleshooting purposes.  default-mode.conf was originally intended to
# provide a way to describe the alternate setups used by the Splunk Light
# Forwarder and Splunk Universal Forwarder.

# The only reasonable action is to re-enable input pipelines that are
# disabled by default in those forwarder configurations.  However, keep the
# prior caveats in mind.  Any future means of enabling inputs will have a
# different form when this mechanism is removed.



disabled = true | false
disabled_processors = <string>


* Refers to a particular Splunkd pipeline.
* The set of named pipelines is a splunk-internal design.  That does not
  mean that the Splunk design is a secret, but it means it is not external
  for the purposes of configuration.
* Useful information on the data processing system of splunk can be found
  in the external documentation, for example

disabled = true | false
* If set to true on a specific pipeline, the pipeline will not be loaded in
  the system.

disabled_processors = <processor1>, <processor2>
* Processors which normally would be loaded in this pipeline are not loaded
  if they appear in this list
* The set of named procoessors is again a splunk-internal design component.
