How to parse XML log?

New Member

Hi All,

We are getting XML logs in our Splunk but from investigation perspective it's very hard for us to read the data . Is there a way we can parse it?

There are a few ways to parse XML logs, including the rex, spath, xmlkv, xmlunescape, and xpath commands.  Which to use depends on your data and what you need to extract from it. 

Please provide more information.  What have you tried so far?  What does your data look like?  What are you trying to get out of it?

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
