Hi,

When SplunkForwarder read file, it stores checkpoint(CRC) in fishbucket. Even after splunk service restart SplunkForwarder has all those checkpoint information in fishbucket.

Have a look at documentation https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.1/Data/Howlogfilerotationishandled so that you'll get idea how splunk reads rolling log files and how it calculates CRC.
