Getting Data In

Saved Logs

New Member

Can I tell SPLUNK to view logs from a file with saved logs? For example, I save logs from another system to C:\Logs.

Splunk can ingest any text file, even if it came from another system. This is done often with syslog data. Just tell Splunk to monitor the file that contains the data.

Splunk monitors for new data in every file or directory it's told to monitor.

@garymilam72 - From Splunk's home page you can directly upload a file or from Settings > Inputs > Files and Directory you can monitor file or directory.
