Getting Data In

splunk handling csv file with each line have different format



I have CSV file consist for example of multiple numbers of line each line has different header and length depending on word in the line for example if column two in file contains cpu then it will have header with 8 columns but if contain memory word it will have another header with 3 columns I had preprocessing script that was grepping file for word and create new file with correct header and set sourcetype in splunk as csv but this script is inefficient in large files so may i know if there is any solution direct from splunk that make me not use this script note number of different header is above 200 hundred
