Getting Data In

Splunk not forwarding/indexing gzip files

Explorer

I'm having an issue where I have a directory that contains numerous .gz files and I'm trying to get them into Splunk, but it is not forwarding/indexing them. My inputs.conf is fairly straightforward:

[monitor:///var/log/ussecurity/*]
sourcetype=us
security
index=security

/var/log/us_security contains nothing but .log.gz files.

Data is not being fed into this directory, we manually copied all of these files over to some prototypes within Splunk. After moving the files to the test location we created the inputs.conf seen above, but nothing is ending up in Splunk when we search for it.

I know Splunk is capable of handling .gz files, so we're a bit stuck as to what the problem is here.

Have you tried this?

[monitor:///var/log/us_security/*.log.gz]
sourcetype=us_security
index=security
