Is there a search or metrics.log that one can get an idea of the amount of data/events being sent to the nullqueue because of props and transforms? I would like to see the volume of data sent away to make filter comparisons and to decrease index usage. The filters are on an intermediate forwarder and if I search for the events in question they are not appearing so I assume they work. The cumulative_hits increment steadily, is this something to go by?
I have looked at the following in metrics.log:
03-25-2011 20:38:45.477 INFO Metrics - group=pipeline, name=dev-null, processor=nullqueue, cpu_seconds=0.000000, executes=4450, cumulative_hits=3469242 03-25-2011 20:39:16.479 INFO Metrics - group=pipeline, name=dev-null, processor=nullqueue, cpu_seconds=0.000000, executes=4113, cumulative_hits=3473355
