Getting Data In

Why is JSON Event Data Showing Duplicate Values?

Hi,

I'm trying to ingest json data but it showing data twice for each event field. I used below in props.conf and not sure what is causing the issue.

[sourcetype]

INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS = json

KV_MODE=none  #( tried both KV_MODE=json and None)

SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true

pulldown_type=true

TIMESTAMP_FIELDS=<timestamp field>

AUTO_KV_JSON=false

NO_BINARY_CHECK = true

 

Data in SH:

Title:  [RESOLVED] Increased Error Rates

it's the "INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS"

Splunk is doing search time extractions natively on the JSON data anyway and the indexed extractions are adding the duplicate, as well as using up more disk space, you can remove that config and everything should be fine

pretty sure you could just drop the entire KV_MODE and AUTO_KV_JSON lines as well and search time parsing would still extract all your fields for you

here's an exact config I just setup the other day:

[batch:///opt/logs/*.json.gz]
disabled = false
index = <index>
sourcetype = <sourcetype>
move_policy = sinkhole


[sourcetype]
disabled=false
NO_BINARY_CHECK = true
LINE_BREAKER = <regex>
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
TRUNCATE = 0
DATETIME_CONFIG = <time>

Hi,
The "Data in SH:" doesn't show much. It's linking to you Splunk local instance. Can you correct that and share an example of what you're seeing?

Hope I was able to help you. If so, some karma would be appreciated.
