Getting Data In

Is there a way to run search inspector from command line?

Esteemed Legend

I am finding that some scripts I use to automate searches are experiencing data fallout due to timeouts AND not reporting this fact (no errors messages nor error codes). So I would like to add the following capability to the script: Capture the job ID for my search in Splunk (I am sure I can figure out how to do this). Once the search completes, launch the job inspector on my search to check if I have any timeouts or other errors before I report my results.

Can this be done?

Splunk Employee
Splunk Employee
./splunk show jobs <id>

Also, when you spawn your search job, you could specify the search id to use via the -id option. However, you will have to make sure there are no name collisions.

In addition, if you spawn your job with -detach 1, the CLI will output the search id of the job (but not emit the results, just like if you start a background process in the shell).
