Getting Data In

SNMP Log file (Logrotate)

New Member

I have a working snmp log file which I can search and email the data "anomosied" successfuly now however it i emailing all the contents of the file that match the search not simple the latest one / two of interest, I could using Redhat to logrotate, however is there anyway within Splunk to get just the top X matches or such? I would like to keep all the data at the moment.

Thank you in advance Anthony
