SPLUNK Couldn't index all files from the same path

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.
