WMI and timestamp problems

I'm pulling events from remote computers using WMI as described in the splunk docs. Everything seems to be going quite well except... sometimes I encounter something like that in my logs:

Failed to parse timestamp in first MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD (128) characters of event. Defaulting to timestamp of previous event (Mon Dec 6 12:22:22 2021). Context: source=WMI:WinEventLog:Application|host=<redacted>|WMI:WinEventLog:Application|1

Which is quite surprising since I thought that WMI-pulled events should have proper timestamp created from the event timestamp on the source machine. Anyone encountered such issue?

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
