First day using hunk/splunk. I seem to be set up ok but just can not get anything returned form a Virtual Index.
The index is pointing to a correct HDFS directory with permissions.
Is there anything obvious I may not be doing correctly? Any answers appreciated?
First things first, check your time picker at the right of the search bar and set it to "All Time". Did you set your virtual index to recurse the directory? You could be only looking at the top level directory. If that doesn't solve it, if you could click on Job->Inspect, scroll to the bottom, click search.log and then send us a pastebin of that, that could help us troubleshoot.
It seems like you have incorrectly specified the HDFS port. 50070 is usually the HTTP port, you need to specify IPC/RPC port, which usually defaults to 8020. So, the solution would be to change the file system setting in the provider to: hdfs://tv-dev-clust1.tv.talktalk.lab:8020 (or whatever the port is)

Thanks for looking in, you are right, I was using the wrong port. I tested using an incorrect IP and saw it error, but I didn't think to test the port. I am now in, the tool looks great.
