Getting Data In

SPLUNK Couldn't index all files from the same path

Path Finder

please need your support as SPLUNK didn't parse all files from same path, i.e for example in my inputs.conf there are 2 stanza to monitor two paths. each path has around 1250 files, so i should find around 2500 files when searching for files.
i updated inputs.conf with (crcSalt = and initCrcLength = 2000) and nothing occurred

i found only the exact number of files after restarting SPLUNK service, so is it a mandatory to restart splunk every time i got the files to be parsed ?!!!

[monitor:///home/Path1/*.xml]
disabled = 0
host_segment = 4
index = index1
sourcetype = sourcetype1
recursive = true
crcSalt =
initCrcLength = 2000

Yes, for changes in inputs.conf file, you have to restart Splunk instance.

Alternatively, you can refresh Splunk instance without restart using '../debug/refresh' endpoint. But, it may not be applicable for all config file change.
