Why does the custom search command display only 1000 events?

Path Finder

The following custom search command (which should return 100,000 displays) returns only 1000 events in Splunk. The rest of the events seems to be accounted for, but are not displayed; Splunk 6.x and 7.x:

import splunk.clilib.cli_common as spcli
import splunk.Intersplunk
import sys
import time

keywords, options = splunk.Intersplunk.getKeywordsAndOptions()

def main(args):
  results = []
  row = {}
  for i in range(0,100000):
    record = {}
    record['_time'] = time.time()
    record['_raw'] = "{" + str(i) + "}"
    results.append(record)
  splunk.Intersplunk.outputStreamResults(results)
  exit()
main(sys.argv)

commands.conf:

[test]
filename = test.py
local = true
overrides_timeorder = true
streaming = true
supports_multivalues = true
generating = stream

look for limits.conf

Configure:

[searchresults]
maxresultrows = 100000

No that doesn't seem to change the behavior, I added this in limits.conf, then restarted splunk.

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk btool limits list | grep -A10 searchresults
[searchresults]
compression_level = 1
max_mem_usage_mb = 200
maxresultrows = 100000
tocsv_maxretry = 5
tocsv_retryperiod_ms = 500
[set]
max_mem_usage_mb = 200
maxresultrows = 50000
[show_source]
distributed = true

Same behavior as previously reported though... only 10,000 results visible.

Note that the same behavior is observed with the default splunk command:

| streambag chunks=100

there are no events passed page #20. Exact same behavior.

This is because by default it's limited at 1000 in code.

You can increase this value in limits.conf:
[search]
maxeventsper_bucket = xxxx
