This app does not add any new inputs, it merely rewrites syslog events matching the IOS format. You need to already have IOS events coming in as the syslog OR cisco:ios sourcetype.
1. Install in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/TA-cisco_ios
2. Make sure your Cisco devices by default log to one of the following sourcetypes: cisco:ios OR syslog (A regex match will be performed to rewrite the events to the cisco:ios sourcetype)
3. (OPTIONAL for Smart Call Home support)
3.1. OPTIONAL - Add a new TCP data input on a port of your choice, set sourcetype to Cisco:SmartCallHome
