Full Description


This is a splunk light forwarder in an official Ubuntu container.

This container is intended to be used in an environment with a Splunk deployment server. Two configuration options can be passed via environment variables:

  • DEPLOYMENTSERVER (mandatory) is the host and port of a Splunk deployment server
  • CLIENTNAME (optional) the client name to identify as to the Splunk deployment server

These two parameters, passed in as environment variables, are used to generate $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/deploymentclient.conf

A typical execution might be: docker run -t -i -h $(hostname) -e -e CLIENTNAME=$(hostname) -v /tmp/splunk:/opt/splunk splunk

The resulting conf (if the hostname was forwardall) would look like:

targetUri =
clientName = forwardall
