Hi,

I was wondering is there a Splunk command to find out configuration errors? For example, LINE_BrEAKER in props has a typo. So is there anyway we could find out these types of errors?

use btool

In a terminal on the Splunk server, use the command

$ SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool check

Other useful variants are

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool validate-strptime
$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool validate-regex

Just run $SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk btool to see full syntax and options.

btool just outputs to standardout, so you see its output immediately on the commandline after entering that command.

For more convenient viewing, you can redirect the output to a file, or pipe it to a viewer like less or more the usual way.
