If you have  filtering enabled that will filter more than one event e.g as follows, there is a known issue found with all 8.1.x/8.2.x and 9.0. Next 9.0.1 will have the fix. 8.0.x is not impacted.

 

 

whitelist1 = EventCode="299|342|394|500|501|528|624|627|628|629|630|644|672|4608|4610|4611|4614|4616|4622|4624|4625|4634|4647|4648|4662|4670|4720|4723|4724|4725|4726|4728|4729|4731|4732|4734|4735|4738|4740|4741|4742|4743|4756|4757|4767|4768|4769|4771|4776|4778|4779|4781|4800|4801|4904|4905|4907|4946|4947|4948|5136|5137|5140|5141"

Hi, 

I am interested to know more if there is tactical remediation to this issue affecting 8.2.X? before upgrading to version 9.0

We are seeing very high CPU utilisation in our AWS EC2 instances, which has meant we have to restart the Splunk universal forwarder.

Appreciate if Splunk have a remediation for this.

Many thanks.
