Getting Data In

Ignoring a specific portion of the log file (header/footer)

Engager

I want splunk to start indexing my log file only after it encountered a specific string/regex.

Everything before that marker should be ignored as I have no use for it.

Is there any way to do that?

Thanks

For Splunk 6, see:

Specifically the example on ignoring useless long headers.
