Getting Data In

can splunk monitor fschange

Communicator

I want to know the user details, what changes happened, when, if someone makes changes to config files. is that possible?
I tried something below, I got events as

6/14/10 9:20:52.000 AM Mon Jun 14 09:20:52 2010 action=add, path="C:\TEMP\configs.txt", isdir=0, size=388, gid=-1, uid=-1, modtime="Mon Jun 14 09:17:56 2010", mode="rwxrwxrwx", hash=

[monitor://\192.168.1.12\Siteroot\Web.config]
disabled = false
index = _audit
sourcetype =dfgd
pollPeriod = 60

and when I tried to set up this config in Splunk forwarder, I didn't get any results.

from inputs.conf documentation -
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.1/Admin/Inputsconf

[fschange:D:\Siteroot\web.config\]
fullEvent=true
pollPeriod=60
recurse=true
sendEventMaxSize=100000
index=main
sourcetype =dfgd

i think instead of monitor you should use fschange
and for index, we should not use _audit
(maybe -index=mainORsomething)

EDIT - thanks @harsmarvania57
