Is com.splunk.Service thread safe?

Engager

Hello,

When using Splunk JAVA SDK, is it safe to create a single com.splunk.Service object and the use it to run multiple searches simultaneously from a number of separate threads? If yes, can search executed in one thread block searches from other threads from executing (apart from limits on number of searches per user imposed by server) or "break" the Connection object in some other way (for example, by uncommanded logout from server)?

Did anybody answer you on this? I'm trying to ask the same question, which I probably already know since I'm here...:) Anyway, I'm using a new Service class for each thread, but still no luck it starts to hang after running for little bit...Let me know if you found a solution..

The new Service object seems to run as many searches as your quota allows. I have not seen a need to establish new connection for each thread. What version SDK / Splunk are you using ? Post your specific error, if got one.
