Getting Data In

WebSphere SystemOut.log import missing much of the file.


Brand newbie here... After I finished the tutorial, I tried to import WebSphere Application Server files for the first time.

I have an 11 MB SystemOut.log file which I'm trying to import into Splunk.

Well, it shows one event from the latest date in the file.. and then skips back 11 months. There's plenty of data from the current year.  Considering this is a filetype which Splunk natively recognizes, I wouldn't expect any configuration to get it parsed properly.

I tried installing the WebSphere add-in and that didn't help the situation

Any ideas?

Sorry, it turns out that I was looking at the import screen, which only shows the first 1000 lines. Search actually finds the rest of it. Thanks!
