Unable to search Cisco eStreamer logs. How to resolve error "Insufficient permissions to read file" message?

we are running on Distributed Search Environment, we have two Heavy Forwarders. i'm actually unable to search estreamer logs so i have noticed this in splunkd.log

"Insufficient permissions to read file='/opt/syslogs/generic/mxwmexc02r/784861.log' (hint: No such file or directory , UID: 0, GID: 0). "

and one more warning message i have encountered "TailReader - File descriptor cache is full (100), trimming... " . Not sure why is this happening in only one forwarder and this is not happening in other?

A new Splunk Firepower solution is now available if you are using Firepower version 6.x. You can download the new eStreamer eNcore for Splunk and the separately installable dashboard from the two links below:

eStreamer eNcore
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3662/

eNcore Dashboard
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3663/

It is free to use and well documented but if you would like to purchase a TAC Support service so that you can obtain installation and configuration assistance and troubleshooting you can order the software from Cisco (support obligatory with this purchase). The Product Identifier is: FP-SPLUNK-SW-K9.

Regardless of whether you take up the support option or not, updated versions will be made available to all free of charge and posted on Splunkbase as well as Cisco Downloads.

This looks like you are exhausting inodes on that forwarder.
