In the same page of documentation, you can find examples of the items that you can exclude from the diag file (link below). Depending on for what issue you're uploading diag for Splunk Support team, you can execlute lookup and dispatch direcotry as they are generally big.

Upload instructions are also available in the same page

Hi Koushik_Katta, You can run the diag by executing this from the command line $SPLUNK_HOME\bin\splunk diag

If you wish to leave out certain components, you can add a --disable= flag such as:

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/splunk diag --disable=dispatch --disable=pool

This documentation you linked to has more options.

Please let me know if this answers your question!
