Getting Data In

In my current batch stanza in inputs.conf, why is the file indexed twice?

Path Finder

My inputs.conf is as follow:

[batch://C:\Splunk\2.txt]
index = netiq
move_policy = sinkhole
sourcetype = shinsei_db_audit_utf8

[monitor://C:\Splunk\log_SME*.log]
disabled = false
followTail = 0
ignoreOlderThan = 100d
index = netiq
sourcetype = shinsei_common_shift_jis

With this inputs.conf, the batch stanza object 2.txt is indexed twice every time.
If I remove the whole monitor part, the 2.txt is indexed once.

What is the reason of it being indexed twice?

You're using batch stanza, is the file 2.txt deleted after indexing ?

As you mentioned, it's indexed twice, what's the source type of them ? Is it one from shinseicommonshiftjis and other form shinseidbauditutf8 ?

Thanks

Yes, the 2.txt was removed after it was indexed.
2.txt is indexed twice, and both of the sourcetype are shinseidbaudit_utf8.

If I move "" from Line 6, [monitor://C:\Splunk\log_SME.log]. This phenomenon will not happen.
