Monitoring Folders

Path Finder

Splunk is monitoring several folders, but upon careful inspection I've noticed that it seems to be "skipping" files here and there. What's the easiest way to "make" Splunk go back and read in those files?

Thanks, -S.

The second half of this page might be useful in understanding how Splunk decides whether a file is new/updated. Might not help, just throwing it out there...

Ah! Helpful. So, if I salt the CRC with, say, , will it go back and re-index everything, including the files that are already indexed perfectly well?

That sounds like it might work... never tried it myself though so only one way to find out!
