Thank you for the reply. I am trying to use the sendalert command as I want to test the alerting functionality of splunk. Can you please explain the diff between sendalert and sendemail?

sendalert is to invoke an alert action. If you have defined one in alert_actions.conf to invoke a script.

sendemail is like a regular email alert
