My Setup is 1 SearchHead, 1 Cluster Master, 2 Indexers and a bunch of Forwarders.
A logfile looks something like that:
<134>Aug 14 07:46:04 pm-1234
With pm-1234 as the host name. So Splunk does interpret the pm in the host name as past morning. In the example the interpreted time would be 19:46:04, but it it correctly 07:46:04 AM.
Yesterday, I added to the sourcetype in props.conf on Cluster Master following line:
TIME_FORMAT=%b %d %H:%M:%S
Followed by command
splunk apply cluster-bundle
But as I looked this morning, the new logfile entries are still interpreted false.
What did I forget?
Note: If I ingest the data and define another sourcetype for the data, where I set the TIME_FORMAT right, the timestamp is interpreted correctly; but this is not an option for me; it was only for testing. But if I edit this sourcetype in props.conf, I don't see that the change was successful.
