Splunk Search

the mechanism of tpstatusquery command


Hi ,

I saw this search command in "File Monitor Inputs" dashboard in SoS App

this command can get some special information about splunk monitor file , for example : splunk detect a file which size is zero , seek pointer position is zero , status is "finished reading" , I need these kind of information

anyone know how to get theose message using search command ?

I tried to study the source code of "tpstatusquery" command but it is too difficult for me
