i want to create a alert on log file which will be updating frequently..plz tell me the way to connect to that log file which will be updating..i am using splunk enterprise
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! 😄
