Getting Data In

How to monitor network file share drive ?

Path Finder

I have application data being collected on following shared folders over network :


To monitor them, is it necessary to install splunk UF at qlikviewt1 or there is a workaround ?
If there is a work around how can I modify my input stanza for same?

Could you get the inputs from the file share? I am also having same situation. If you have already done, can you please share the arrangement you implemented? Thanks in advance,

I am coincidentally also trying to load the qlikview data logs into Splunk from a shared drive. What did you end up doing as a solution? Splunk may see the \qlikview\ path from the cmd window and successfully adds it to the monitor, however it doesn't seem to ingest any of the files.

You can remotely probe anything by running a scripted input on another server that has a Splunk forwarder installed as an intermediary. Read about it here:
