Getting Data In

Data collection not working- What should I check for collection of csv file data?

Intermittent text file data collection is not possible.

Initially, it is a collection of csv file data.

After that, if you change only a few characters in the csv, you cannot collect them intermittently.

Which part should I check?

 

- setting

[monitor://D:\Space\Config*File\Devicenet_Config.csv]
disabled = 0
host = HOST_NAME
index = FDC_MainUtility
sourcetype = FDCField
crcSalt = <SOURCE>

What you describe sounds normal.  Splunk will not necessarily notice arbitrary character changes in a file.  If it does notice then it will re-index the entire file - possibly resulting in duplicate data.  Splunk expects new data to be written to the end of the file.
