Hi,

I have the following input setup and it won't work. I cannot figure out what is wrong with it.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

JG

@jgorman_THG,
the problem could be that you use three / slashes in the monitor stanza.

Try this
[monitor://C:\Program Files (x86)\Syslogd\Logs\SyslogCatchAll-192.15.0.2-2018-08-08.txt]

Also... have you restarted splunk after configuring this?

Yup! that fixed it! I know it was something silly and small like that.
