about metrics.log:name

Champion

What is the last value of name in metrics.log?

name=default-autolb-group:172.01.01.01:9997:0
name=default-autolb-group:172.01.01.01:9997:1

What does (0 OR 1) mean?

<mythbusted>I believe it denotes pipelines when parallelization is being used <\mythbusted>

EDIT: My bad, I was thinking of Ingest_pipe=*

The number on the end of the name appears to be an index of all the unique receivers in that group

name is a combination of conf stanza and entries that fully define the target system to the software.

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/Troubleshooting/Aboutmetricslog#Tcpout_Connection...

My tcpout_connection entry looks like this:

name=default-autolb-group:10.10.31.83:9997:0

because the default-autolb-group only contains one indexer.....will add another and confirm

In your example do the numbers match the amount of unique indexers?

Hi, mmodestino
I thought so, but there are obviously more numbers than pipeline number.
