Getting Data In

Why is the "collect" command in my saved search saving generated data to an index with incorrect timestamps?


Hi ,

I have a saved search that is executed every minute and generates data. I have a "collect index=" command in the search to save the generated data to an index.

My observation is that the index is collecting data, but with the incorrect value for the _time field of the index.

What is causing the invalid timestamp being recorded in _time field? How can I fix this?

Please let me know.

Thank you.


Setting _time=now() and collecting the events in the index is setting the _time correctly to the current time.

But not sure if this is how collect should be working.

Some more information on the issue we are facing.

Seems like the _time is being set to latestTime of the search.

This is not right.

Please help.

Thank you.
