how to start a Splunk search from a bash script

New Member

I am pretty new to Splunk. I am looking for a way to start a Splunk search from a bash script. The scrip will be scheduled using cron. It will run periodically checking for a file. If the file has been received, it should trigger a Splunk search. Is is possible to do that? How? Any clue?

Thanks

Ok, I did not know that. I am running Splunk a in Linux system and files with performance data from Windows will be received peridiocally. So, I can know if these file have been received using Splunk, right? How?. Could I trigger a search over those files?

Why use bash? Splunk can monitor files and schedule scripts natively.
