Getting Data In

TCP-SSL is receiving data but events are not getting indexed

I am developing and app and everything worked fine for a while. I then tried to package everything under my app default directory including the input.conf:
[tcp-ssl:xxxx]
sourcetype = syslog

[SSL]
rootCA = /opt/splunk/etc/certs/cacert.pem
serverCert = /opt/splunk/etc/certs/splunk.pem
password = xxxxx

I can see the packets coming in the port using tcpdump; so, Splunk is receiving network data but the idexing stopped; the data is diappearing. There are no licensing issues and I am stuck. No errors How do I debug this?

Thanks I found the problem. The Splunk timestamp processor was not able to process the <\d+> field of syslog messages. I fixed it with DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT in the props.conf file which disables the timestamp processor.

Search you _internal index for err* or warn*

index=_internal log_level=err* OR log_level=warn*

Sometimes its easier to restart splunk, then perform the search looking at last 15 minutes (to reduce the clutter you will find).

If there is an ssl issue it should show up at the time of the restart.

Can you please post your complete inputs.conf and outputs.conf (masked of course) from your app directory and the inputs.conf from your indexer.
This would help.
