Hi ,

my splunk version is 5.0.3 , I find the flashtimeline dashboard shows only the first 1000 events if the number of my search result is large then 1000 events

for example I search "index=_internal | head 1010" , Splunk shows there are 1010 events match my search command , but in "Paginator's" module , it only show 20 pages (50 events per page)

any idea about that ? thanks

Please increase max_events_per_bucket in limits.conf:

[search]
max_events_per_bucket = 1000

Here is the description in document http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Admin/Limitsconf:

  • For searches with status_buckets>1 (i.e. Timeline), this setting will specify the maximum number of events to store per timeline bucket.
  • Defaults to 1000 in code. (limits.conf in default will override to 10000 for 4.3.x until 5.0 to maintain existing behavior until the next major release)
