edit file server.conf

Path Finder

i changed file server.conf as per this document "https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.1/Admin/Serverconf"
The goal is to optimized the load per index to increase performance.
However I got the bellow issue:
Invalid key in stanza [general] in /opt/splunk/etc/system/local/server.conf, line 6: pipelineSetSelectionPolicy (value: weighted_random).
Did you mean 'parallelIngestionPipelines'?
Did you mean 'pass4SymmKey'?
Invalid key in stanza [general] in /opt/splunk/etc/system/local/server.conf, line 7: pipelineSetWeightsUpdatePeriod (value: 15).
Did you mean 'parallelIngestionPipelines'?
Did you mean 'pass4SymmKey'?

Please help to explain why i got this and how to fix
Thanks ALL

Please show your complete server.conf stanza. Where and how did you define it exactly?

Hi vumanhtai,
at first, site option must be used only if you have a multisite cluster, do you have it?

Errors are related to the following options

  • pipelineSetSelectionPolicy = weighted_random
  • pipelineSetWeightsUpdatePeriod = 15

about the first, try to insert the default value "round_robin" and check if you have still the error.

About the second, use with caution this option because you could have other problems in search.

Bye.
