Alert when Search runs too long


I was wondering if there was a way to have an alert sent to an email address, after a Splunk search has been running for over a certain duration of time?


Something like this to get you started:

index = _* sourcetype=audittrail  info!=canceled | stats list(info) min(_time) as min max(_time) as max list(total_run_time)  list(search) by search_id user

You can adjust a bit to get your alert.
