Reporting

Row Limitation for PDF generation

hi,
I've created a report which will return me at least 100,000 rows. I scheduled the report to send an email with an attached pdf, the pdf did not return the correct number of rows. My report is only a simple table with 5 columns.

Is there a limitation to how huge the pdf report can be? I can't find documentation on this, or where to configure the row limits.

You can configure $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/limits.conf file.
*[pdf]
max_rows_per_table = *
then,restart splunk.
also,you can find $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/README/limits.conf.spec file about this.

But,I must say that 100,000 rows are really huge.You should consider to reduce the size.

The suggested solution doesn't work in v6.4. In my case, after having set the limit to 2000, pdf doesn't show records beyond 28 rows. Is there any other solution?
