Something's up with the batch processor. I send the following file to a sink and it doesn't set any of the metadata fields as it used to previously.
Also documented at http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Data/Assignmetadatatoeventsdynamically
***SPLUNK*** host=something source=keyboard sourcetype=text
this is an event!
Subsequent processing of props and transforms don't event happen.
The event get's indexed as if I never specified the header.
Fails on a fresh Splunk 4.2.2 (build 101277) on Windows 7 64bit but works Splunk 4.1.7 (build 95063).
PS I noticed another post with a similar problem
Just received a reply from support, the behavior is now configurable via props.conf by modifying the HEADER_MODE param.
HEADER_MODE = always
