I didn't use INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS, but why are fields for my IIS logs still getting extracted properly in Splunk 6.2.1?

Hi all,

I found blogs on IIS logs and Spunk 6. I didn't use the INDEXED_EXTRACTIONS, but why are fields still getting extracted properly in Splunk 6.2.1? I just want to know about the internal functionality.

Thanks

If you don't specifically set a sourcetype or any other settings when adding the input, I'd say splunk was smart enough to notice that this is IIS data and decided to use the header data. After all, it is a pretty distinguishable type of log.

Thank you Jeffland.
Is their way to check all per defined header detail in splunk?
