Getting Data In

Splunk not indexing all data in a file

Path Finder

I have the splunk forwarder installed on my Snort box and have it pointed to my indexer. It is sending data over, but not all of it. It seems to only be sending over the header information. Here is an example of what I see on the indexer.

You may be experiencing the same issue.


Did you 'enable' the _full input in the Manager GUI (or manually into inputs.conf) on the indexer? Am wondering whether you are just looking at forwarded logs...but that Splunk for Snort isn't clocking that it has work to do?
I can't see anything wrong with your forwarder params so far.
If you search on sourcetype of snort (because it renames it) can you see any 'interesting fields' e.g. src_ip, dest_ip etc etc?
