Stream capture configuration basics

Use the Configure Streams UI inside Splunk App for Stream (splunk_app_stream) to configure the specific network data protocols (such as http, tcp, dns, pop3, smtp and so on) that you want the streamfwd binary to capture.

Use the streamfwd.conf file in Splunk_TA_stream/local to configure system-level parameters (specify IP address/ports, add network interfaces, enable SSL, and so on) for the streamfwd binary. See Configure Stream forwarder in this manual.

Note: streamfwd pings splunk_app_stream at default intervals of 5 seconds. To change the ping interval, modify the PingInterval parameter value in streamfwd.conf. For more information, see Stream Frowarder sizing guide in this manual.
