Getting Data In

Pretrained source type for PI log files

Hi,
Is there a pretrained source type for .dat OSIsoft PI log files ?
I know I can create a .csv file manually from the .dat file, then use the .csv file in Splunk but I would like to read the logfiles directly without this extra manual step.
Thanks in advance

One of my collegues showed me a way to run the csv conversion from a command prompt:

pigetmsg -if "pimsg_1131112.dat" -st "1-jan-1971" -et * -fc > pimsg_1131112.csv

pigetmsg is part of the PI SMT (System Management Tools). It's in the adm folder.
