Hi,

We are trying to monitor directory using splunk.Using Files & Directory data inputs,we are unable to monitor directory.We have only file browser and when we try to click a directory SELCECT option is disabled and only if we click on files SELECT option is getting enabled.Do we have to make any configuration changes to enable directory monitoring???.

Regards,
Thenmozhi

I suspect you are trying to preview the data. Preview only works with one file.

When you want to monitor a whole directory skip the preview:
A File or Directory -> Consume any file on the server -> Skip preview

Then select the radio button - "Continuously index data from a file or directory this Splunk instance can access" and enter the path in the input box.
