I have several reports set up and configured to send email alerts. But I'm not getting emails which appears due to the below WARN messages. Mostly this happens to the reports running at night, like after 9pm..
05-22-2017 19:05:13.201 +0000 WARN script - Script has timed out and will be killed, maxtime=300sec, script=/opt/splunk/bin/python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/search/bin/sendemail.py '"results_link=https://splunk.mysplunk.com.au/app/search/@go?sid=scheduler__my user_searchRMDb6ea072df8e31633_at_1495479600_37189"' '"ssname=ErrorCode Testing"' '"graceful=True"' '"trigger_time=1495479612"' 'results_file="/opt/splunk/var/run/splunk/dispatch/schedulermyusersearch_RMDb6ea072df8e31633_at_1495479600_37189/results.csv.gz"'
This is my configuration, using amazon email service;
In etc/system/local/alert_actions.conf mailserver = email-smtp.east.amazonaws.com:25
use_tls = 1
Why it takes more than 5 mins for the sendemail.py to send just short email message?
