Hi prakashv546,
can you elaborate on your question? Did you bring the data (log file) to Splunk? if not, is it local to the Splunk server?

Hi prakashv546, You'll want to setup a input monitor on the files. See: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/Data/Monitorfilesanddirectorieswithinputs.conf for more details on how to accomplish this.

Splunk quite readily handles continually-written-to files, and so that shouldn't be an issue

Please let me know if this answers your question! 😄
