Getting Data In

How to troubleshoot why we are seeing duplicate data when running a search in our indexer clustering environment?

Duplicate data.

I am noticing that we are getting 4 identical lines occurring when i issue a search from a search head.

This is using an indexer cluster (4 nodes, 2 at each Data Center) and forwarders that are configured to use native loadbalancing, along these lines:

Would the expectation with such a cluster just be one line per logfile entry? Have we done something wrong? Is the duplication more likely to be the index cluster or the forwarders - is there a way to determine ?

So what was the final outcome? Did you end up figuring out the root cause?
