Install and deploy a universal forwarder for Splunk Light

You can use the Splunk universal forwarder to collect and forward data from other machines to your Splunk Light instance or Splunk Light cloud service. The universal forwarder is a separate Splunk software product that you need to install and configure before you can add a receiving data input in the Splunk Light instance.

For more information about getting data into a Splunk Light instance, see:

For information about getting data into Splunk Light cloud service, see About forwarding data to a Splunk Light cloud service in the Splunk Light Cloud Service manual.
