Technology Add-on for Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS): Trying to get ACS logs into Splunk, the _indextime field is correct, but why not _time?

Hello Guys,

I am facing issue with the _time field. Splunk is not recognizing the time properly, but all other things are working perfectly like _indextime and all.

I am attaching the screenshot for references.

I had even included following things in props.conf file on both the paths etc\system\local & etc\apps\TA_cisco_ios\local, but after doing that, still no luck

[cisco:acs]
# TIME_PREFIX = ^
# TIME_FORMAT = %B %d %H:%M:%S
# MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 19
# SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
# LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]+)(\w{3}\s+\d+\s+\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}\s)
# TRUNCATE = 999999

Any solutions to sort this out?

If you are shooting for the first timestamp in that event, then the only problem that you have is that your settings are commented out! So change to this:

[cisco:acs]
TIME_PREFIX = ^
TIME_FORMAT = %B %d %H:%M:%S
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 19

Hey faizancool85,
I see at least three possible time stamps here, one at the start of the event, another one following directly behind it, and then there is one in the event (after the CSCOacs_RADIUS_Accounting). Which of these would you like to use?

Thanks,

Dave
