Getting Data In

Why is Splunk not indexing logs located in a directory containing multiple levels of subdirectories?

Path Finder

I set up a data input to index all the data from the following path

/pipeline/node

This directory contains multiple subdirectories, and each of these subdirectories contains 5 subdirectories and a log file. Splunk is picking up and indexing the log file in the first level of subdirectory but it is not indexing the log files contained within the other five subdirectories.

Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Have you tried monitoring /pipeline/node/*?

Path Finder

I have tried using a wildcard character and ellipses to recursively catch the subdirectories but neither seems to work.
