Windows custom events logs not showing up in Splunk

Explorer

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
startfrom = 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

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

[WinEventLog://Citrix Delivery Services]
disabled = 0
startfrom = 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?

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-CDFErrorReporter/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.
