The following are the spec and example files for eventtypes.conf.
# Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Splunk Inc. All Rights Reserved. Version 4.3.2 # # This file contains all possible attributes and value pairs for an eventtypes.conf file. # Use this file to configure event types and their properties. You can also pipe any search # to the "typelearner" command to create event types. Event types created this way will be written # to $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/systems/local/eventtypes.conf. # # There is an eventtypes.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default/. To set custom configurations, # place an eventtypes.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. For examples, see # eventtypes.conf.example. You must restart Splunk to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation # located at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles [<$EVENTTYPE>] * Header for the event type * $EVENTTYPE is the name of your event type. * You can have any number of event types, each represented by a stanza and any number of the following attribute/value pairs. * NOTE: If the name of the event type includes field names surrounded by the percent character (for example "%$FIELD%") then the value of $FIELD is substituted into the event type name for that event. For example, an event type with the header [cisco-%code%] that has "code=432" becomes labeled "cisco-432". disabled = [1|0] * Toggle event type on or off. * Set to 0 to disable. search = <string> * Search terms for this event type. * For example: error OR warn. priority = <integer, 1 through 10> * Value used to determine the order in which the matching eventtypes of an event are displayed. * 1 is the highest and 10 is the lowest priority. description = <string> * Optional human-readable description of this saved search. tags = <string> * DEPRECATED - see tags.conf.spec
# Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Splunk Inc. All Rights Reserved. Version 4.3.2 # # This file contains an example eventtypes.conf. Use this file to configure custom eventtypes. # # To use one or more of these configurations, copy the configuration block into eventtypes.conf # in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. You must restart Splunk to enable configurations. # # To learn more about configuration files (including precedence) please see the documentation # located at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Aboutconfigurationfiles # # The following example makes an eventtype called "error" based on the search "error OR fatal." [error] search = error OR fatal # The following example makes an eventtype template because it includes a field name # surrounded by the percent character (in this case "%code%"). # The value of "%code%" is substituted into the event type name for that event. # For example, if the following example event type is instantiated on an event that has a # "code=432," it becomes "cisco-432". [cisco-%code%] search = cisco
