Hi ,

Does anyone know which index does search.log data populates in?
I find search.log during a job inspect, mostly its the source /var/run/ dispatch.
How to fetch that in Splunk UI?

Also another question,

What does the line below represent? Does it report the size in MB?

INFO  DispatchThread - Disk quota = 31457280000

Cheers !

Search logs are not indexed so you won't find them in the UI, except via the job inspector.

The disk quota is the amount of storage allowed for the search. I believe it is in bytes.

search.log is not indexed, and it expires (gets deleted) when the job expires.

Each user (or role) has a maximum disk quota fromwhich search jobs consume space (until they expire).
Run too many large searches, and the quota fills up, preventing more searches, until some of the old ones have been cleared out (by default 10 mins).
I expect that value to be in bytes, rather than MB.

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

are you just trying to get the search string, itself?
