I have a Splunk Cloud trial instance. I am using a Sprint Boot application to make a simple HttpPost call to the HEC in Batch mode. The format of the event is JSON and I am not adding line breaks between two events.
Splunk is receiving the requests and adding them as events. However, each of my events is getting truncated and is not showing up as a well formed JSON. I can see that the entire event is not being added, and when I measured the size of each event, it was coming up to 10kb.
I then found this: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Data/Configureeventlinebreaking
Specifically, I think I'm being impacted by this:
The Splunk platform uses the LINE_BREAKER and TRUNCATE settings to evaluate and break events over 10kB into multiple lines of 10kB each.
1. Is there no way to send events to Splunk Cloud larger than 10 kb?
2. If it is indeed supported, what configuration do we need which can be performed via Splunk Web, since we don't have access to config files etc in Splunk Cloud? Is it something related to Source Types (Advanced config)?
