The stanza will monitor the temp.csv file in HF & forward it to indexer.

The temp.csv can be placed manually or pushed through any script to that path.

Below may help. 

For Linux :

[monitor:///opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/temp.csv]
index = main
sourcetype = csv
disabled = 0
crcSalt = <SOURCE>

 

For Windows

[monitor://C:\splunk\var\log\splunk\temp.csv]
index = main
sourcetype = csv
disabled = 0
crcSalt = <SOURCE>
