Can splunk index same data into one index but different sourcetypes??

Path Finder


I have to index a log file in linux server in to one index but need to have two different sourcetype. Is it possible??

I tried but when compare 

index = audit_idx sourcetype = linux_audit and index =audit_idx sourcetype = linux_audit_mll , results are not same there are few logs missing in each.

Want to know why its happening.

Thanks in advance..

you can use CLONE_SOURCETYPE to clone same event to the different sourcetype. You should remember that  it duplicates your license usage!
