Hi @aalaa,

DBconnect doesn't store any data. It allows you to create a connection with Data Bases and collect the data from there or use the DB as a lookup.

If you have a DB input setup, the all you have to do is look for the index where it's writing the data and you'll have everything there. If there is no DB input created then you're not indexing data at all and it's all still on your data base or in some lookup file.

Cheers,
David

You're welcome @aalaa.

This document explains how Splunk stores data, what the index structure is and what the buckets inside an index are:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Indexer/HowSplunkstoresindexes

All your indexed data is stored on your indexers and the structure of each data index is as the one you'll see described in the link above.

Let me know if that helps and if there's anything I missed.

Sorry, but your question is not clear to me. Do you mean where does the Splunk DB Connect stores it's data that is being queried from a database table? Or where does the Splunk DB Connect saves it's config files. Please clarify.
