Can someone help me on basic questions about search refresh?

Hi

 

I use a search refresh like this

 

          <earliest>-15m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
          <refresh>30s</refresh>
          <refreshType>delay</refreshType>

 

 I have 2 questions :

1) Is the refresh delay starts from the search saving? 

2) Is it possible to synchronize th search delay between 2 searches because actually I use the same refresh delay between 2 searches but the refresh doesn't occurs in the same time

Thanks

If the two searches are based on the same search, but with different outputs, then you can make a base search used by both searches and apply the refresh setting to the base search, which will then cause both post processing searches to execute at the same point.

Hi @jip31,

search delay is a cron definition, so it's fixes every 30 seconds (in your case), it isn't influenced by the search duration.

It isn't possible to synchronize the refreshes of two searches, you have to measure the average duration of each search and choose the delays.

Ciao.
