Getting Data In

Date_Time Stamp from when the file was created or modified

Hi Guys,
I have a CSV file that is created periodically that I have been asked to bring into Splunk.

The events in this file don't have a time stamp on them.

Is it possible to get the datetime from the "date modified" file properties.

At present it is resorting to the time the file is ingested.

Thanks
Mel

Set DATETIME_CONFIG = NONE in props.conf for this source or sourcetype. Then (assuming you use a monitor or batch input) it will take the file modified time.
