Hi All,
I have a problem about splunk DB Connect App (Splunk Enterprise 7.2.3 - DB Connect 3.1.4) with my MySQL instance.
The MYSQL query return events and it's all right, rising column is ok, no error, but after I save the input, the events are not indexed:

2019-01-11 10:12:13.855 +0100 [QuartzScheduler_Worker-8] ERROR org.easybatch.core.job.BatchJob - Unable to write records

The column of table are very simple and small like a integer id or char name.

Someone can help me please?

Http Event Collector expects to receive dates in format:

timestamp.microsecondes

Splunk DB connect transforms dates in this format via Java. If the default locale takes the comma as the decimal separator, the problems start ...

To solve this problem :

In Splunk DB Connect > Configuration> Settings> General, add the option in JVM Options:

-Duser.language=en

Save, java server restarts.

Did you encountered problem on Windows?

By default I advise you to install the last version of Splunk Enteprise and DB Connect.

Let us know if you're having problems.

Hi!

Yes! I got errors like this (Unable to write records) on Windows and versions 3.1.4 or 3.1.3

I solved this by downgrading to 3.1.1

I saw in the post below and confirmed through internal logs that time field from HEC payload has a comma and not a dot like in documentation. Maybe it be a bug ?

As I mention before, I thought that it was related with the new version, not sure if only DB Connect (3.1.4) or also because of Splunk Enterprise (7.2.3).
I solved it downgrading Splunk Enterprise to 7.2.1 and uninstalling DB Connect, then I installed 3.1.2 version and made new connections and identities in DB Connect. Don't copy them from 3.1.4, you have make new ones from beginning, otherwise it will not work.

I hope it helps you.

Álvaro.

I resolve the problem tuning the env variable of OS (my LANG/LC_ALL was in IT) :

LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

After server reboot, this one has resolved my problem.

Splunk Enterprise: 7.2.3
DB Connect: 3.1.4
OS Centos: 7.x
DB: MySQL 5.x
