Slow search for squid for a 30 days report

Path Finder

hi all, i have a problem with a squid search, it is very very slow (over 30 minutes to load) the search is this:

sourcetype="squid" | timechart span="1d" sum(size)

the time for the search is 30 days. How can i speed this search?

the extraction field for the size parameter is

(?i)^[^/]*/\d+\s+(?P<size>[^ ]+)

Summary indexing is one way to speed this up. Conceptually, you tell Splunk to pre-compute this data for smaller intervals (say once per day) - and then you use that pre-computed data to complete your intended search faster.
