SmartLog only indexing the current fw.log

Jump to solution

Hi there,

Our smartlog for some reason is only showing logs for the current fw.log file (meaning I only have half a day of logs in smartlog). The time of my smartlog index ties up exactly with the start of the current fw.log file. When fw.log rolls over I lose all my previous logs and it starts the index again. 

Smartview tracker is showing 40 days worth of log files, I have over 1tb of free hdd space. tried disabling smart log, pushing policy then re-enabling it again but the same results. It was working previously, not sure what changed.

This doesn't seem to be a common issue either, any ideas?

Looks like a miracle has happened, I now have 13 days of logs in smartlog, I think running sk73361 must have fixed it and it just took a very long time to reindex the files. I might even  get more logs if I check again later.

thanks for your help!

You may check this one below - it has references to two good SKs you may want to read regarding log indexing. Your indexer is possibly stuck at a specific log file and you may want to skip it manually.

thanks for the reply, I think that command is suited only for MDM as it didn't work well on my box. I also went through those two SK's to no avail.

if I check $SMARTLOGDIR/data/FetchedFiles it is showing 122 log files, I also followed another sk73361,  the fetchedfiles accumulated back up to what it previously was, but still cant see the logs in smartlog!

to take away MDS part, run it like this

cat $INDEXERDIR/data/FetchedFiles | while read line; do if [ `echo $line | awk '{print $7}'` -eq 0 ] && [ `echo $line | grep -c " fw."` -eq 0 ] &&  [ `echo $line | grep -c "serialization"` -eq 0 ]; then echo $line; fi done

can you share output of cat $INDEXERDIR/data/FetchedFiles?

On my system the variable $INDEXERDIR doesnt exist. However removing that and using the absolute path (/var/log/opt/CPSmartLog-R77/data/FetchedFiles) the output of the command gives the exact same output as doing just the cat of the file (same number of lines - 122)

The output of cat is: (trimmed to just the top 5 lines)

Oh, you're on R77! Will have to dig notes out on that subject. I thought it was R80 Smiley Happy

Have you looked at these SKs: 

SmartLog does not index logs that existed prior to SmartLog installation 

SmartLog cannot index existing old logs 

Also have you checked logs in $SMARTLOGDIR/log/smartlog_server.elg
