Check the status of forwarders in Splunk Light

You can check the status of the universal forwarders that are configured with your Splunk Light instance using the following views:

The Forwarder Monitoring view is a dashboard that lists the total count of forwarders you have configured, including a status of each forwarder. From the sidebar menu, go to System > Forwarder monitoring.

The Forwarder Management view is a dashboard that lists universal forwarders configured as deployment clients with your Splunk Light instance. From the dashboard, you can view and manage deployed add-ons, server classes, and clients. From the sidebar menu, go to System > Forwarder management.

Note: If you have universal forwarder(s) configured, but they are not displaying on the Forwarder Monitoring or Forwarder Management pages, confirm you have installed and configured the universal forwarder(s) according to the installation steps.

  • For Splunk Light on-premises installations, the universal forwarder must be configured to forward data to Splunk Light and as a deployment client, and the Splunk Light instance configured to receive data from the universal forwarder and as a deployment server. See Forward Data to Splunk Light in the Getting Started Manual.
  • For Splunk Light cloud service installations, the universal forwarder must have the credentials installed and configured, and configured as a deployment client. See About forwarding data to a Splunk Light cloud service in the Splunk Light Cloud Service manual.
