How do we index a data file which is an aggregated data for a given day. The data does not contain timestamp.
Splunk gives an error while searching- saying that "Error in IndexScopedSearch: The search failed. More than XXX events found at time t"
I've looked at these forums and found the following link, which tells me its a limitation on Splunk.
Consider the following use-case.
Imagine, you are looking at a stock price data on a day-scale for 6 months. The data file in this case, may contain ticker price for a given day. If the data points are more than 100K, since there is no timestamp, Splunk given the error during search time.
Sounds like a good candidate for a daily summary. This way, you would have one value per day (or one value per hour) --or several values such as avg, max, min, etc.--depending on the level of granularity you want. This could make it easy to see a larger (yearly) timeframe.
