Is there any way to selectively re-index data?

I know that by deleting the fishbucket index Splunk will re-index everything. Is there a way to selectively re-index data for a particular source or sourcetype?

Thx.

Yes, you can use btprobe command in the forwarder (or wherever the data source is located) to reset the (fishbucket) entry for a given key or particular file in fishbucket's btree.

There is more info here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/4.3.2/Troubleshooting/CommandlinetoolsforusewithSupport#...

Hope it helps.

How do I figure out what the key is for a particular sourcetype or source?
