I want to list all the file names in a log file in Splunk whose name ends with, "_bn.txt"
Let's say the field name is path
so my regex looks like
However, this does not list down the results.
But if I use the following regex:
I am able to see all the filenames which end in .txt.
Need to find all the file names ending in, _bn.txt
PS: I don't think underscore is a metacharacter which needs to be escaped.
Underscore is not a metacharacter, but the period is.
would be more accurate. But if there were files that ended in _bn.txt, the first regular expression still should have matched them...
So are you sure that there are any file names ending in _bn.txt in the time range that you are searching?

Hi, yes, the regex worked. For some reason when I ran the splunk query for the first time, it did not work. Yes, I escaped the metacharacter with a backslash. @Ayn: In my case the field name is different 🙂
Also, where are you getting the field name path from? If you're talking about Splunk's field for showing the path of input files, that field's name is source.
