Getting Data In

Issue sending events to nullQueue.

New Member

I'm having some issues sending specific events to nullQueue. I want all events from a specific source with the event_type=SETXATTR sent to nullqueue. I have this in my props and transforms files that is currently not working:

Props.conf

[source::/syslog-ng/nasuni/*/*.log]
TRANSFORMS-null= setnull

Transforms.conf

[setnull]
REGEX = (?<event_type>SETXATTR)
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

Also, where exactly on the indexers should these be? I've read some say to put in the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local folder and others say to put in the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/myapp/local folder.

Thanks!

Hi bnichols024,

I think your REGEX is incorrect....you made the capture group a named group called event_type, rather than looking for the string.

Try this:

[setnull]
REGEX = (event_type = SETXATTR)
DEST_KEY = queue
FORMAT = nullQueue

Hi,

Please check the regex whether it's capturing the data as needed. Please give us a sample event to work it out for you.
Your props and transforms are correct
The best practice is to put the conf in your app directory $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/myapp/local.
