Thought I posted this before, but can't find it in my history.
I am seeing alerts in my Splunk logs statin that the I am getting data from the future on my sourcetype script:installedapps. It's default and unmodified from the Splunk_TA_Window standard.
From there I did notice that _indextime and _time were off a bit.
When I look at props.conf provided by Splunk_TA_Windows it has no time stamp recognition. Is there a reason for this? Should I go ahead and add it or is there a trick for this I am missing?
So I went ahead and created a basic props.conf per my undertanding of best practice.
My latency between time and indexed time was about -80second on this sourcetype. After adding the below props.conf to a local override I am now getting closer to 10 seconds.
Didn't think props.conf would so dramatically impact a single sourcetype like that, but I guess it could? Either way no longer getting the data from the future error either.
