Hi,

I was working with Splunk and XML data from past 1 month, and found that Splunk is not very friendly with XML as compared to logs.
Can anyone help me out that is it really a good suggestion to use Splunk with XML data source.

Thanks in advance!

You can also use the xmlkv command to extract the fields from xml.

I have used xpath and spath, I wans able to generate some of the reports but it looks like Splunk is actually not meant for structured xml data.
