Is it possible to use collect command to collect data from one index and move it to another, where destiation index is not a summary index ?

index=whatever host=whatever source=whatever whatever | collect index=foo

Where foo is pre-configured index in indexes.conf.

Sure. I don't think collect really cares where it gets dumped, just be aware that there will probably be some summary data within the dumped information.

Thanks Alacercogitatus

Could you please highlight what summary data would be indexed.

some extra fields will be added to the orinal index. you are going to loose event structure, host will change to local splunk instance name. you can see by using a single event collect. Rather than using collect you could copy the buckets.
