Splunk DB Connect 2: Is there a way to get just new rows, not every row in the table each time I connect to a database?

Explorer

When connecting to a database using Splunk DB Connect 2, is there a way just to get new rows? Otherwise, I get every row in the table each time I connect.

Turn on the "Follow tail" option in your DB Connect 2 input. You will need to designate a column to be the "risingcolumn" for that query. This column's value is always increasing and is used by DB Connect to pick up where it left off. Timestamps are often good risingcolumn candidates.
