Why doesn't Splunk index old events in same log file?

Hi,

So i am trying to index the log file data.log, log file is 2 days old and splunk is indexing only the latest events. Is there a way i can index the older events in data.log ?

Hi
can you share your clients/UF's inputs.conf stanza for that file?

Hi @SS1,

if your system doesn't index logs older than 2 days, probably in your inputs.conf there's an "ignoreOlderThan" option.

So, if you want to index events older than two days you have to disable this option.

Ciao.
