It is possible to index the same complete file within a certain period of time.
Example: I have a configuration file with approximately 2000 lines and 61kb, I needed to index this file once every 6 hours.
Would anyone have any ideas? I tried to make some settings in the file input.conf and props.conf, but all without success.
Thanks in advance for your support.
One slightly ugly approach is to schedule a scripted input to run every 6 hours. The script can be a few lines of python code that read the file and write it to stdout, which Splunk will index.
