I created a sourcetype (props.conf) to parse my json files. A local input (index once) was created only to test the props.conf and it works fine!
When I tried to create a continuously monitor file the events didn't appear in Splunk. I tried to monitor the entire folder (*.json) and a specific json file.
Has anyone had something similar?
I agree with what @aakwah wrote but a bad props.conf file is not going to stop data from coming in (although it may come in "wrong"). We need to see your inputs.conf file. When you make changes to input.conf, you must restart the forwarder's splunk instance.
