The following are the spec and example files for
# Version 8.1.8 # # 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 the Splunk platform. # CAVEATS: # 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 the Splunk platform, # along with the entire configuration scheme that it affects. Any settings present # in default-mode.conf files will be completely ignored at this point. # # Settings in default-mode.conf affect how pieces of code communicate. # Configuration changes in default-mode.conf might fail to work, # behave unexpectedly, or harm your deployment. Any changes must be made # only under the guidance of Splunk Support or Services staff for # use in a specific deployment of Splunk Enterprise. # INFORMATION: # 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. # SYNTAX:
disabled = <boolean> 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 http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Deploy/Datapipeline disabled = <boolean> * Whether or not the Splunk platform loads the specified pipeline. * 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 processors is again a Splunk-internal design component.
