Getting Data In

Set timestamp to system or executiontime for scripted input

Hi

I use a script which gets a lot of data back, sometimes the string looks like a timestamp and splunk decide to use this string as a time. This results in a strange behaviour that events become a time which is years ago or in the future.

Is it possible to tell splunk, to use the execution or actual system time for this scripted input?

One possibility is to create a timestamp in the script, but the output is very long so i would leave unnecessary data.

Thanks
Robert

You can tell Splunk to use the current indexing time as timestamp for the event like this:

DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT

See http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.2/admin/Propsconf for reference.
