Heavy forwarder - HttpClientRequest

Motivator

Hi ,

I am getting the following exception during the simple rest, exception is in the HttpClientRequest, I am using Splunk heavy forwarder 6.2.1.,

 ERROR IntrospectionGenerator:resource_usage -  HttpClientRequest - Caught exception while parsing HTTP reply: Unexpected character while looking for value: '<'

In addition to that this happens during high traffic time frame. What would be the next steps.

Thanks,
V

Could you provide more details on what REST endpoint you're using and how you're invoking them? Do you get this error for all invocations OR just few during high traffic?

I'm using splunk default simple http receiver that configured in heavy forwarder. 3rd party post the data using the heavy forwarder url. 2 hour window they post the data using some scripts or something. I have got a lot of traffic coming in. Splunk couldn't handle the request
