Splunk_TA_stream stats data
The Splunk Add-on for Stream Forwarder sends operational statistics and log data to
_internal index. Splunk App for Stream uses this data to populate built-in dashboards, including the Stream Estimate dashboard.
Splunk_TA_stream sends three event types to
streamfwd* event type comes from the Stream forwarder's local log file. The forwarder monitors that log file along with other files in the
$SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/ directory. The data that
streamfwd* contains is the same data found in
stream:log. You can safely block the
streamfwd* event type to avoid indexing duplicate data.
For more information, see Include or exclude specific incoming data in the Getting Data In manual.

By default, the Splunk universal forwarder sends a maximum of 256 Kbps of data to indexers. Depending on your
streamfwd configuration, your deployment might generate more data than this.
