Can you please tell us how to resolve this error on our Windows universal forwarder,

Invalid key in stanza [monitor:C:\jmeter\Workspace\SplunkData\ST
AGE] in C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local\inputs.conf,
line 7: blacklist  (value:  \.(jtl)$)
                Invalid key in stanza [monitor:C:\jmeter\Workspace\SplunkData\ST
AGE] in C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder\etc\system\local\inputs.conf,
line 8: crcSalt (value: <SOURCE>)
                Your indexes and inputs configurations are not internally consis
tent. For more information, run 'splunk btool check --debug'

inputs.conf:

[default]
host = USZMPAPWQ004

[monitor:C:\jmeter\Workspace\SplunkData\STAGE]
index=idx-sqe-perf
sourcetype=csv
crcSalt = <SOURCE>
blacklist = \.(jtl)$

Consider using this stanza:

[monitor://C:\jmeter\Workspace\SplunkData\STAGE]

Added the double-slash of monitor://.

crcSalt requires a value. You don't need to set crcSalt so just removing that line should resolve the issue.

I think you are looking to set:

crcSalt = <SOURCE>
