Flag As Inappropriate


File/Directory Information Input

This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
The File Info add-on provides an input for indexing file meta-data (size, last modified dates, etc.) and indexing it in your Splunk instance to make it searchable.

Please consider financially supporting me in the developing this app in order to promote continued development; see https://github.com/sponsors/LukeMurphey
