ISO8601 Segmenter Configuration

Overview
Details
This add-on will configure Splunk to not consider an ISO8601 timestamp when generating the index. It will save significant disk space at the cost of not being able to search free text on timestamps.
i.e. it's no longer possible to search for terms like '2018'. Normal search by time of course still works.

This package contains a segmenters.conf for ISO8601 datetime stamps.

After enabling this, Splunk will ignore ISO8601 timestamps at the start of an event in its indexing process.
The timestamp will be correctly interpreted, _time will be set, but the timestamp will not go in the free text search index.

Example, in the following log entry:

2018-10-14T10:54:12+00:00 hostname liblogging-stdlog: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="8.24.0" x-pid="19060" x-info="http://www.rsyslog.com"] rsyslogd was HUPed

Terms like 2018, 10, 14T10, 54, 12, etc will not appear in the index and will not be searchable.

Installation and Configuration

To enable, reference it in props.conf. It cannot be configured from the Splunk GUI.
This Add-On needs to be installed on indexers only.

[syslog]
SEGMENTATION = iso8601

or

[source:/var/log/remote/*/*/*.log]
SEGMENTATION = iso8601
