Getting Data In

How to speed Up Windows Event Log Processing?

New Member

I indexed about one GB of Windows Event Logs using the add data feature by monitoring the folder where the event log files are stored in. The indexing takes about 12 hours to complete. I expected the process to be a lot faster. The CPU, Memory and Disk usage was constantly low during the processing. Is there a way to speed the processing up?

You probably have the default maxKBps which I think is 1024. Set this to 0 in limits.conf on your forwarders.
