Getting Data In

Could not send data to parsing queue

Explorer

I have following in the logs-

INFO  TailReader - Could not send data to output queue (parsingQueue), retrying...
INFO  TailReader -   ...continuing.

On checking the metrics.log, I can see it reads-

INFO  Metrics - group=queue, name=parsingqueue, blocked=true, max_size_kb=512, current_size_kb=511

So, the problem is likely on the indexing side only - perhaps the indexing box is overloaded.

Any idea what can be done to fix this?

Hi siddharthmis,

Can you check monitoring console and also how many files server is monitoring?

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply. The server indeed monitors huge number of log files.
I increased the maxSize limit to a higher value in server.conf at the location ...\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\apps\SplunkUniversalForwarder\default\ and it helped.

Hi ,

Good it got resolved. But its always best practice to change configuration in "local" directory instead "default". 🙂
