Getting Data In

Can you help me troubleshoot my issue involving sending data to output queue(parsing queue)?

Path Finder

Hello Splunkers,

Lately, we have been facing issues in on-boarding data due to the “Could not send…..parsing queue full” issue whenever there is a data burst.

We have been setting maxkbps in limits.conf to unlimited(0) and parsing queue size to 10 MB from 512kb temporarily as a workaround.

What is the Splunk recommended best practice to address this issue?

Splunk universal forwarder version - 6.4

Check the below link:

Most cases this occur due to congestion on the indexer side. you need to look into the "QUEUES" and sort out based on which queue is filled.

For example, look for line breaking/truncating for parsing queue; dateparserververbose for aggregation queue, regex for typing queue and check the IOPS value ( random seeks ) if the indexing queue is filled, ensure that you have 800 IOPS value on the indexer.

DId the temporary workaround helped?
