When using Splunk to retrieve data from an Oracle database, how do I reduce the returned results to only the last 30 days?

Splunk database input query from oracle database ?

I am using Oracle database to retrieve data to Splunk and the database is getting slow because of searching from given data. So i need to reduce only last 30 days data.

Query :

SELECT test.request_ts FROM test WHERE  test.Request_Ts > '2018-10-05 00:00:00.000'
{{AND test.$rising_column$ > ? }}

Thanks in advance

Hi karthi2809,

You can use DB Connect app and index the whole db data into splunk.
After you index the data, it will resolve the performance issue

Hi ,

You can do one thing. Put the timestamp of the particular column in your DB table into Splunk. Any try that one out. It will index the data using the same timestamp of your DB.

Have you tried this method ??
