Creating alerts that monitor matching results in real time within a rolling window


I monitored a log file located in my local PC using Splunk. I created the alert that that monitor matching results in real time within a rolling window. In the splunk search app, i click create>alerts. I followed the steps to create that kind of alert in the splunk's documentation. I created the alerts in the alert manager. After creating, i went to the Manager>Searches and reports>SYN-Flood Alert(The name of the alert) to change the Splunk's search command so that the search command would match whenever the log data matches the search then the alert will be triggered. However, i do not see the alerts triggered immediately after i created the alert and modified the search command for that particular alert. Why is this so? Is there any way that i can make sure the alert is triggered in the alert manager?

I'm running into the same things - did you ever find a result?

In my casae my alerts from perfmon work - but files don't.
