We have identified the issue.
The problem was caused because lumberjack not updating the file descriptor.

Thanks.

Hi @lpolo 

crcSalt is not recommended for rotating files, you can remove that setting and clear the fish bucket and restart the UF to start reading file.

splunk cmd btprobe -d $SPLUNK_HOME/var/lib/splunk/fishbucket/splunk_private_db --file $FILE --reset

Hope this helps!

If your log file contains a common header that is greater than 256 bytes then Splunk won't recognize it as new. If that is the case you can use initCrcLength to compensate. See the documentation below.

initCrcLength config stanza ws tried too.

I clearing the fish bucket should do the trick.
Thanks
