Getting Data In

How to reindex the same source

Path Finder

I tried to reindex the following windows directories using "Monitor" from input data.

d:\logs\appx
d:\logs\appy
d:\logs\trac

the above folders contain 3-4 log files.
I gave specific sourcetype for each data input folder.

Splunk indexed "appx" and "trac" folders but not "appy" folder. I am unable to see the events from the search results for appy, but I can see Splunk showed count of appy directory under files & directories. I deleted the datainputs and sourcetype and added appy with different sourcetype and index but still I can't see the events in the search results.

I tried to add crcsalt but I don't have permission to edit the input.conf file.

How can I reindex the appy directory

NOTE: Splunk indexing files under appy individually but not entire appy directory.

Is it possible for you to run the following on the forwarder ./splunk cmd btool inputs list monitor?

I am not fetching data from remote servers to run that forwarder command.

Those directories are on splunk local server. (I mean that "appy" directory is located on D drive and splunk installed on C drive) no other servers connected using universal forwarder..

I can index the individual file under that appy directory but not entire appy directory. Wondering why its not indexing because the logs in appy are similar to other folder logs but different application.

I am searching for "all time" only . Interesting thing is it is indexing individual files but not that directory.
