Getting Data In

forwarder logs different type from the indexer.

Explorer

I want to use forwarder to forward mail logs to indexer.
However, the log forwarded from the forwarder is displayed separately from the indexer.
how can i solve it.

start character: MAILLOG
end character: END
MAIL

[[[forwarder log file]]]
ex1) The forwarder log file looks like this:
MAILLOG
date:2019-00-00 00:00:00
subject: abcdefg
from: abc@abc.com
to:abcd@abcd.com
size:12345
content:afafa
...
END
MAIL

[[[indexer]]]
The log is divided.

ex1) only mail start characters logs.
MAIL_LOG

ex2) only part of the message logs.
content:afafa

ex3) Do not include the mail start character logs. MAIL_LOG
date:2019-00-00 00:00:00
subject: abcdefg
from: abc@abc.com
to:abcd@abcd.com
size:12345

provide the screenshot of the log file and the same data in Splunk.
I think, the issue is because of sourcetype configuration for multiline event.

Please explain more about what you mean by "the log forwarded from the forwarder is displayed separately from the indexer". Use actual example events, but hide private information.

The forwarder can check the log file in full format. However, the log is truncated on the indexer.

Your props.conf settings probably need to be adjusted. Please provide some sample events and we'll try to help you get the settings right.
