Data suddenly stopped indexing data from DB connect app?

New Member

Hi,

In DB connect app for one of the connections we are able to see the sql output in the app but it has stopped indexing. We can see the connection name in dbx_audit log but no errors.

Hi ketannagpal,

a good starting point is the DB connect input health http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/health/DeployDBX/Monitordatabaseconnectionhealth it might be your input was disabled by DB connect because of too many errors on it.

If the input is still enabled, check the troubleshooting section of the docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/DBX/latest/DeployDBX/Troubleshooting which provides a lot of useful tips.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Thanks MuS, I have verified everything in DB connect. This is an issue with one particular connection,In DB connect app everything looks good, but data is not present in indexer. I can also see the sourcetype present in license.log file.
