Splunk Add-on for Tenable: Security Center Logs Failed to Index

gworkun

On Splunk 6.6, most up-to-date Splunk Add-On for Tenable. Been using it successfully from around February 2017 til middle of May 2017 with no issues, but after a Splunk update or two, have noticed the logs stopped flowing into Splunk.

No network change, Security Center user change to be noted, but seeing the following error at regular intervals coming in (once every 60-90 seconds, just depends on the interval I have set or changed to troubleshoot). Didn't know if this was due to an update to Splunk that the Add-On did not account for, or if it was something else. Seeing some few other questions with similar reported issues, but wanted to bump the posts up with this error.

Any assistance or direction would be fantastic!

I've actually had some luck just re-installing app on an existing Indexer that did not have the app previously. Made no changes to any python files or setup things, just re-added inputs through the App on Splunk and seems to be working about. Still curious about that error, but reapplying app to new indexer has worked for me for now.

Any luck? Im having this problem with v5.1.1 on Splunk 6.5.2. Upgraded app to v5.1.2 and still no luck.

Funnily enough, I was going to close my question today with an update saying "all has been well since the update", however - it seems that my HF got restarted at the weekend, so its not really had time to prove itself yet.

Stay tuned...

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

Despite searching, I only found your question after posting mine!

Smells like it could be related - will see if I can see the same error in mine.

Indeed, tried your temporary solution of disabling/enabling the input to no avail. I'll keep exploring other routes, but seems like may need some guidance from app creators or those that have seen this problem often.
