Checkpoint logs being indexed incorrectly ( One hour earlier )


I am having trouble with my checkpoint log.
Or indefinite is late hour.

Actual time of the event: 12:15.
Time that is indexed on spunk: 11:15: AM

Time at checkpoint is correct. Splunk time is ticking. Already added in props.conf the checkpoing or sourcetype [opsec] and put the parameter
TZ = America / Sao_Paulo, but I have the wrong indexing

The past weekend was daylight savings changeover. Are you certain all your timezones are set properly? Is the clock on the indexer(s) accurate?


If you feel this response answered your question, please do not forget to mark it as such. If it did not, but you do have the answer, feel free to answer your own post and accept that as the answer.


Hi Jacob.
Yes. I'm check all indexers.

Where have you put the props.conf for TZ setting for opsec sourcetype, Indexer/Intermediate Forwarder OR at universal forwarder where you're monitoring the log file?


A TZ configuration was used in the indexer. This server has the OPSEC LEA app and all configuration is all made on it.
