Will Splunk ingest a TAR file with a .diag extension?

Motivator

Hi,

I know Splunk will injest a TAR (and other types) file, my question is what if the file extension is NOT *.tar or *.TGZ? In this case the extension is *.diag and there will be 200+ individual files per day so manually renaming them isn't a viable option.

Sorry I should have been more clear. The *.diag file is a tar file, it just doesn't have the tar extension.

Hi

uncompressed tar files with suffix .diag are working
compressed tar files with suffix .diag are NOT working

following error message occurs in splunkd.log when it's gziped:
11-10-2016 09:50:12.793 +0100 WARN FileClassifierManager - The file '/opt/splunk/blub.diag' is invalid. Reason: binary

Kind Regards
Darth
