Getting Data In

How to monitor network file share drive ?

Path Finder

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

\qlikviewt1\east\torage\
\qlikviewt1\adscv\abck\
\qlikviewt1\asdfg\storage\

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.

Hi I also have similar requirement. Any suggestions how to monitor or feed data in to SPlunk from Qlik shared Drives.

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:
