Getting Data In

Splunk API Time out - Powershell script

New Member

I've made a script in PowerShell which utilizes the REST API input that I have. This script is for downloading extremely large amounts of data from Splunk.

The problem that I am having is that Invoke-WebRequest is timing out and I cannot get the query to complete. The query stays connected for ~5minutes and times out.

@pmccomb001 Set this in your powershell profile, or run beforehand:

[System.Net.ServicePointManager]::MaxServicePointIdleTime = 5000000

Then when you run Invoke-WebRequest make sure you have the TimeoutSec parameter set to zero:

Invoke-WebRequest therestofyourcommand -TimeoutSec 0
