Getting Data In

why Splunk is not able to index all the data from a txt file?


Hi All,

Hope you all are doing good.

I am trying to read two simple txt files containing just the numeric value . These files get updated twice every day, morning and evening. I have used same props.conf for both the files. 

Splunk is able to read the first txt file properly in the morning and evening, but when it comes to 2nd txt file if their is same type of data present in the morning  than splunk ignores that data in the evening.

Example. If in morning in 2nd txt file the value is 1 and in evening the value is 15 than splunk only reads 5 in the evening file.

sourcetype = test
ignoreOlderThan = 60d
disabled = false
crcSalt = <SOURCE>
