Field Description
Data collection node This is a list of all nodes configured in your environment. The status of a node is always displayed. Look at the table to see that the node has passed all the validation checks. if validation fails, you will see an "invalid" status. The data collection node is identified in the table by it's Node management URI. Validation is enforced on the device management URI (as Splunk expects a certain protocol). Specify the full management URI of the Splunk installation. This is comprised of the protocol (https is required) , the address, and the port number for the management URI. For example,
https://testnode1:8089
Do this in the Add Data Collection Node dialog.
User This is the Splunk Forwarder Username for the selected node. The default username is admin.
Worker processes This is the number of processes you have running on the Data Collection Node to process the data and forward it to the Indexer(s). This is remote forwarder management. The minimum number of processes you can run in 1 and the maximum number is 8. Configure this when you create a new node or edit the settings of an existing node.

Each time you access a node, the credentials for that node are validated.

Last updated This date reflects the last time any updates were made to the data collection node.
Credential Validation Credential validation is either valid or invalid. Valid indicates that credentials are established correctly.
