Hello: Does Splunk support Global File System(GFS) in a Linux cluster environment? I set up Splunk in its production environment and it seems Splunk is not recognizing the target event logs.

Thank you,

Yes. GFS are supported.
The customer who submitted this question just needed to wait a few minutes for the indexing to pick up and populate within the search dashboard.

If you are having issues with this, please check to make sure you have set up monitoring correctly and that splunk has rights to read those files.

monitoring on GFS is probably working, but indexing on GFS or using search-head pooling shared storage will fail the filesystem check.
