Splunk Search

What time should be when searching old logs?

I am using Splunk searching old log files and the _time is different from log time, would this make sense or do I have to parse the log to set  _time to log time?

Thanks.

Hi @dujas,

yes, usually the event timestamp (_time) is the same of the event.

You have to better parse your logs to have as timestamp, the event timestamp.

Ciao.
