New Member


I am new to splunk and trying to upload data for practising. I amd using the data from the the below link.

When I try to upload the, It loads for a long time and I get a read timeout

When I extract the and upload a single log file . No issues in uploading, It uploads the logs file and when I click Next --> Set Source Type is empty and not displaying the raw data (as shown in the screenshot) and If I continue till the end, submit and  search for the index/source, I get 0 events found.

Could you please suggest If I am missing anything. I am currently using a free license option.

Thank you for the quick update. I just tried in Splunk cloud with the same zip file and it was working as expected.

at least earlier this has worked exactly how the manual told. If it didn’t work, then you should try to use trial or full enterprise version, not a free version. The free version has some limitations which shouldn’t affect for this test, but it’s the difference for working environment.
