Getting Data In

What should the sourcetype setting be for my sample log in order for Splunk to parse the timestamp?

When i add a sample log file, Splunk is unable to parse the timestamp. What should be the sourcetype setting so it can parse the timestamp correctly?

You need to setup your custom sourcetype with following

TIME_PREFIX = \<GLogDate\>
TIME_FORMAT = %Y%m%d%H%M%S
MAX_TIMESTAMP_LOOKAHEAD = 14
