I am trying to find a solution for the following problem using splunk.
What needs to happen:
Is there a way to do this? I've tried using source="C:\foo\bar\log\log\*" earliest=-2M@M as noted here in this question link, but with no luck. Is this easily possible?
Use Splunk's fschange capability. It will scan for the creation of a new file, and log an event when it happens. Then, your cron job is no longer needed. We do this today for javacores in J2EE apps.
