Installing Splunk Forwarder

New to this form, and hoping someone could help me out. I am trying to use splunk as a lab purpose and learning. I would like to be able to install the splunk fowarder onto openwrt or find an easier way to achieve my end goal which is being able to monitor network traffic and logs in a central space.

Any help would be great,

Thank you

Syslog to the splunk server.
