Hello!!

If a new event log is generated in the index, is it possible the Python script reads the event log and generates a new log?

I want to analyze event log by python script and draw a graph on dashboard by analyzed new log.

You could create a summary index based on a report of the events in the first index and then create a chart based on the values in the summary index. If your summary index needs particular processing that is not possible with standard SPL, you could write your own custom command (in python) and feed the events from the first index to that before writing the results to the summary index.
