Splunk was running on a heavy forwarder during the time period 00:00 to 00:20. Related logs also have been found in splunkd.log & splunkd_stderr.log.
I got few logs from the HF at 23:00. How is it possible?
If Splunk is not running, how did these logs get indexed?
If the logs has timestamp, splunk index in the timestamp of the log. So if the log was create at 23:00, its normal that you have events in that time. Also review the timezone in which you are index the events.
Hope i help you.
The event generated time and index time both are same. there was no lagging in event. splunk was running only for the time period 00:00 00:20 after thet till now i didn't start splunk. then how did those logs get index?
