Known Issues

Date filed Issue number Description
2015-09-09 ERP-1650 timestamp data type not properly deserialized.
2015-08-05 ERP-1619 Searching on a newly created archive index before the bucket copy saved search is run causes a filenotfound exception.

Reenable the bucket copy saved search and let it run, or force the archiving to happen via | archivebuckets force=1 and then rerun the search.
2015-07-07 ERP-1598 minsplit rampup - splits generation takes too long.

Set minsplits=maxsplits
2015-06-16 ERP-1576 Report acceleration does not work with smart search index.
2015-05-12 ERP-1502 Non-accelerated pivot search on Pivot UI page waits for a long time to return result.
2015-01-08 ERP-1343, SPL-95174 Splunk Analytics for Hadoop searches fail on corrupted journal.gz files, although Splunk searches run without error.

Add the journal.gz to the input path's blacklist (vix.input.1.ignore = ....)
2014-10-27 ERP-1216 Data Explorer preview does not honor existing sourcetypes for big5/sjis files.
2014-10-22 ERP-1201, ERP-978 Required field optimization causes problems with time extraction. With structured data sets (such as csv, avro, parquet etc) the product tries to honor the list of required fields as passed down by the search. This may cause issues with _time.

To work around this issue, we recommend that you always use "index-time" _time extraction or add a config option at the virtual-index level to force the product to always output a set of fields.
2014-10-03 ERP-1164 Report acceleration summary gets deleted when two Splunk Analytics for Hadoop instances point to the same Splunk working directory.

To mitigate this issue, make sure that vix.splunk.home.hdfs (or Working directory in the UI) is unique on both search heads that are not in a pool. To keep your instances in the same working directory, configure to be unique on both search heads.
