Why doesn't the splunk clean kvstore command give any feedback?

Motivator

Based on Why does the tSessions_Lookup_Update report take a long time to complete?

I ran the following commands -

splunk clean kvstore -app splunk_app_windows_infrastructure -collection tSessions_collection
splunk clean kvstore -app splunk_app_windows_infrastructure -collection tSessions_Lookup_Update
splunk clean kvstore -app splunk_app_windows_infrastructure -collection tSessions_collecti

All the names are probably wrong as the name appears to be tSessions. What bothers me is the fact that running the command, doesn't produce any output. Why is it? Are there any other commands to administer the kvstore lookups?

The clean command does not give much feedback because it is intended to clean up a component of a Splunk installation (eventdata, user data, global data, etc). There are other administrative CLI commands that give more detailed feedback to the user like the show command.

The clean command does respond with a confirmation prompt to allows the person executing the command to think twice about what it is about to do. This can be skipped by adding a -f flag at the end of the command.

Ok, do you how we can use show command to see the available kvstore lookups?

Not sure how to use the show command specifically to view kvstore lookups.

You could use ./bin/splunk btool transforms list --debug and add an --app= but this will print out all the transforms for that specific app (including all defaults). So it would look like this:
./bin/splunk btool --app=splunk_app_windows_infrastructure transforms list --debug

Nice. Running ./splunk btool --app=splunk_app_windows_infrastructure transforms list --debug | grep -i tsession shows -

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_windows_infrastructure/default/transforms.conf [tSessions]
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_app_windows_infrastructure/default/transforms.conf collection = tSessions_collection

It doesn't show the size, but we can see the size via the MC...
