Oracle alert log recycle

New Member


I was able to send Oracle alert logs to splunk and do some basic searches.

However, I've one issue. What happens when we recycle alert log ?

On regular basis, we rename alert log file and compress it. The problem is, there is lag to transfer logs to splunk.

so when we rename alert log file, what is going to happen to log in splunk ?

we don't want to miss any data in log file and want to everything in alert log. How can i do that ?

I'm using universal forwarder and input.conf has filename, sourcetype...
