Getting Data In

Why a tiny file doesn't get indexed?

Ultra Champion

We see the message INFO WatchedFile - Will begin reading at offset=313 for file xxxx and the input file is exactly 313 characters and it was not indexed so far. We added crcSalt = <SOURCE> and it didn't help.

How can we do to get this file to be indexed?

what does ./splunk list inputstatus say for this input?

Sounds like we knew about the file and have the seekptr in the fishbucket. Maybe try and zap the fishbucket?

./splunk cmd btprobe -d  /opt/splunkforwarder/var/lib/splunk/fishbucket/splunk_private_db  --file /var/log/messages --reset

Are you sure we haven't indexed it? Have you searched all time?

Perfect. I searched all time...

I ran the command and got back -

Using logging configuration at /opt/splunk/splunkforwarder/etc/log-cmdline.cfg.
