Download the Splunk Universal Forwarder

The Universal Forwarder provides a fast and secure way to collect data from remote sources.

Universal Forwarders provide reliable, secure data collection from remote sources and forward that data into Splunk Enterprise for indexing and consolidation. They can scale to tens of thousands of remote systems, collecting terabytes of data with minimal impact on performance.

Once the Universal Forwarder is installed on the remote systems the following benefits can be realized:

  • Tagging of metadata (source, sourcetype and host)
  • Configurable throttling and buffering
  • Data compression
  • SSL security
  • Transport over any available network ports
  • Local scripted inputs
  • Centralized management
