Hi ,
Below is custom event logs which I am configuring on windows forwarder but they are not showing up in Splunk. We can see events coming from default events like system,security etc. Below is syntax I am using

[WinEventLog://Citirix Delivery Services]
disabled = 0
start_from = oldest
current_only = 1
checkpointInterval = 5
index = wineventlog

alt text

Attached screenshot shows location of event logs

Hi,

Just some comments to that:

  • Isn't the name in your config file wrong? Shouldn't it be "Citrix Delivery Services" instead of "Citirix Delivery Services]" (notice the extra i)
  • I can't see your screenshot very well but there seems to be two blank spaces between Delivery and Services, is that the case?
  • Also, is "Citrix Delivery Services" the full path of your event log?
  • Finally, have you tried reading from any other log in the same folder such as "Internet Explorer" and see if that works?

Thanks,
J

Yes Citrix delivery services is complete folder. Somehow i started seeing data after windows server reboot. Now I am adding couple more customized . Below is events I want to see and screenshot. Is path mentioned correct ? This event is underneath other events from events view, but exist in same folder structure

[WinEventLog://Citrix-CDF_ErrorReporter/Admin]
disabled = 0
start_from = oldest
current_only = 1
checkpointInterval = 5
index = wineventlog

Hi, as per the screenshot the path looks correct to me.
Hopefully that should be working just fine.

Thanks for replying. It was typo in post. Was using correct syntax in my use case

[WinEventLog://Citrix Delivery Services]
disabled = 0
start_from = oldest
current_only = 1
checkpointInterval = 5
index = wineventlog

What about the other 3 points I mentioned above?
Did you manage to try any of that?
