I'm quite new to Splunk and recently installed an instance on a debian machine. When trying to upload a log File i got the Issue that the depth_limit in limits.conf was not big enough to execute the operation.
The documentation states that the default file is located under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/ und the custom configurations are stored under $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/.
But neither of these folders exist inside the splunk home directory. Any ideas why and what i can do to achive it?
Which method did you use to install Splunk, and where are you looking for $SPLUNK_HOME? Typically Splunk is installed in the /opt directory, so the paths will expand to /opt/splunk/etc/system/default/ and /opt/splunk/etc/system/local/
