Getting Data In

List the files being monitored with listtails in 4.1.1

Path Finder

The command below used to work on previous versions (4.0.8), but now that I have upgraded, I get the error below.

wasadmin@apache05:/opt/splunk/server/splunk/bin> ./splunk cmd listtails

couldn't run "/opt/splunk/server/splunk/bin/listtails": No such file or directory

Any ideas on how to list the files being monitored?

Thanks, Sean

You can use

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk list monitor

for a list of all things that splunk is currently monitoring.

Check for reference on this.

listtails has been deprecated for version 4.1 and there currently is no replacement for its function although, ./splunk list monitor may provide the information that you're looking for.

listtails will survive after a migration from 4.0x but since it is based on the old tailing code, it should not be used in version 4.1 (which has all new tailing code.)
