What is the Difference beween time of capture and index time in splunk app for stream?

Contributor

We have installed Splunk app for stream on a Distributed environment.
Splunk app for stream is running on SH, SPlunk_TA_Stream is running on Universl fwder and Indexer.
we are able to see the stream data successfully.
What we are trying to get is:
The time at which the packet was captured by Splunk-TA-stream in the UFwder.
The Indextime is available as _indextime and _time.

I need help in how to get the time of packet capture at UFwder by stream.

"_time" represents the system time at which the TA read the last corresponding packet from the network device. This is currently set to the "endtime" field in the JSON event object. Note that "timestamp" in the JSON event object represents the first packet time, and "time_taken" is the delta (in microseconds) between the two.

"_indextime" represents the system time at which the event was stored on your indexer.
