Apparently the default is initCrcLength = 256. This made me start thinking, how many other forwarder logs are we not getting/indexing that im not aware of !?
thus, this search below showed me that 4 of our Forwarder's (of ~22 forwarders in total) where showing this same error for various specific log files (thus those specific logs have not been getting indexed):
Should we be manually setting something like initCrcLength = 2048 on every one of our Forwarders (and on future new forwarders)?
I assume the downside is increased RAM and CPU usage on the forwarders (but this is not an issue for us, as volume is not very high, and resources plentiful). Anything else im not considering as a downside?
I assume we can "globally" set this on a forwarders inputs.conf by simply placing:
initCrcLength = 2048
and it will apply to all stanzas (unless a stanza overrides initCrcLength, of-course), Right?
