I have a stream (udp 518) of syslog coming in from two different syslog servers. I thought that I would be able to specify in inputs.conf like so:
[udp://server1:518] sourcetype = syslog index = index1 connection_host = dns
[udp://server2:518] sourcetype = syslog index = index2 connection_host = dns
This is not working. If i comment out the second stanza, i can see syslog from server1 in index1, but nothing if both are uncommented. Any thoughts?
Don't specify the server and you'll get the data from both. [udp://518]
If <remote server=""> is empty - [udp://port] - the port will accept data sent from any server.
Then here to specify the sourcetype etc...
