I have a few existing inputs with EventGen (v6.5.2) and they work perfectly on Splunk 8.0.5.
The use case I am having trouble with is where:
a) The timestamp is not contained in the _raw data (the actual Production input uses the current index time)
b) There are other timestamps in _raw (they are not related to _time, are separate fields).
c) All events in the csv sample file must be ingested each interval.
I have tried both sample mode and replay mode.
Sample mode ingests the data but identifies different date/time values in _raw and uses that as _time, which is unexpected. This is even while autotimestamp = false.
In replay mode, nothing is ingested due to errors where it can't find the timeField (there is a time column in the csv that I referenced).
So how can I ingest all events in the sample csv file while ensuring _time is the current time, and not dependent on any timestamps in the _raw?
Here is my config for mode = sample.

Csv sample file has the following columns:
