Sourcetype override for KiwiSyslog source

New Member

I'm trying to do an override using an added source to props.conf (in the default directory for the app) but it is not working:

[source::\\anchqqsw108m\logs\(\w{6}-asa\d-?(outside|inside|ncic|wifi)?).*]
TRANSFORMS-force_sourcetype_for_cisco = force_sourcetype_for_cisco_asa,force_sourcetype_for_cisco_pix,force_sourcetype_for_cisco_fwsm

Here are examples of the source:

  • \anchqqsw108m\logs\anchqq-asa1-outside\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt

  • \anchqqsw108m\logs\anchqq-asa1-inside\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt

  • \anchqqsw108m\logs\anchqq-asa5-wifi\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt

  • \anchqqsw108m\logs\anchqq-asa4-ncic\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt

  • \anchqqsw108m\logs\betast-asa4\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt

The source type for the log monitor (\anchqqsw108m\logs) is set to automatic.
Do I have to shift the monitor source type to syslog?

example event log:
2014-05-22 13:11:49 Local4.Warning anchqq-asa1-outside May 22 2014 13:11:50: %ASA-4-733100: [ Scanning] drop rate-1 exceeded. Current burst rate is 3 per second, max configured rate is 10; Current average rate is 13 per second, max configured rate is 5; Cumulative total count is 8224
host = anchqq-asa1-outside source = \anchqqsw108m\logs\anchqq-asa1-outside\2014-05-22\daily-syslog.txt sourcetype = daily-syslog-14
