I am running splunk query which is scheduled to run in every minute to pull the events of last minute. Randomly i getting this xml parse error.

Splunk query :- search index=os sourcetype=cpu all earliest=-2m@m latest=-1m@m |dedup host| eval fields=split(raw,\" \") | eval num=mvindex(fields,-1)| eval cpuUtilization = 100-num |eval humanreadabletime=strftime(time, \"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S\") |table humanreadabletime host cpuUtilization

Error :-

When you go back and run the extract across that same time frame, do you get the same error message? If so, then the problem is a malformed JSON/XML construct. Run the following across one of the failing time periods to find the culprit.

index=os sourcetype=cpu "*]]>*" |head 1
