Writer notes: This topic is not really helpful. Should be made a complete topic or deleted.

Use the Configure Streams Stream Configuration user interface in Splunk Web to set up your configuration:

  • Configuing the specific network data protocols (such as http, tcp, dns, pop3, smtp and so on) that you want the streamfwd binary to capture.
  • TBD

You must have Splunk_TA_Stream installed to configure these parameters. System-level parameters you can configure include:

  • Specifying IP address and ports
  • Adding network interfaces
  • Configuring PCAP file ingestion
  • Configuring and enabling SSL

See Configure Stream forwarder in this manual.

The Splunk TA Stream Forwarder Splunk_App_Stream pings the Splunk App for Stream splunk_app_stream at default intervals of 5 seconds. To change the ping interval, modify the pingInterval parameter in streamfwd.conf.

For more information, see Stream Forwarder sizing guide in this manual.
