Run the command:

splunk diag

a splunk-diag.tar.gz file should be generated in your $SPLUNK_HOME dir.

You can get additional options, such as excluding files, by running the help command:

./splunk diag -help help

This changed a bit at some point to need only ./splunk diag --help or splunk help diag

Heh, note I just changed this so it will be called something like diag-splunkserver-2010-4-5.tar.gz. Coming in 4.1.1 or .2 or so.

And again for 6.2.x soon it will include the time of day upon QA & support request.

How can I email and share the diag with another team? What would be the required steps that I have to take through CLI?
