Why can't Splunk continuously index data from a powershell input?

Builder

Splunk ver : 6.6.6
OS : Linux 7

Universal Forwarder ver : 6.6.6
OS : Windows Server 2016

I configured below inputs.conf and sample.ps1 in the Universal Forwarder and Splunk indexed once, but after that, no more events were indexed.

inputs.conf

[powershell://power_shell_sapmle]
script = . "$SplunkHome\etc\apps\sample_app\bin\sample.ps1"
interval = */1 * * * *
sourcetype = power_shell_sapmle

sample.ps1

$Output = invoke-expression "wmic cpu list brief"
Write-Output $Output

Is my configuration wrong?

Please someone help me.

Hey@yutaka1005,

As per the docs, default the script executes only once.
To schedule the script, you can try using parameter

schedule=<cron>

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/Data/MonitorWindowsdatawithPowerShellscripts

Let me know if this helps!!
