What does the "cancelled" attribute donate when capturing TCP flows using Stream App?

Engager

Hi Everyone,

I have a question regarding the fields returned by Splunk App for Stream. I've configured a number of TCP flow monitors and I see some flows have a "cancelled" attribute.

I couldn't find any documentation about what this field's purpose is, could this be that an RST was sent instead of a FIN|FIN/ACK for a TCP flow? Any other definitions I'm not considering?

Hi,

You're correct - "cancelled" means that the flow was terminated with an RST.

As for where to get the documentation - if you go to the Configuration -> Configure Streams page inside the App for Stream UI and click on a stream, you'll see a list of fields you can enable/disable/etc. Each field there has a description column that provides some info about the field.
