max search length

Contributor

Is splunk having max search length limitation?when i search host="xxx" AND (SRC_IP="xxx OR ...) almost 26000 characters to filter the specific ip zone, the search results can be shown fine, but when generating the report or entering the job management, the splunk will say XMLSyntaxError: Start tag expected, '<' not found, line 1, column 1, it seems likely a char. length problem in parenthesis, any solution to this? we use 4.1.4 version,Thanks

i found when i group this long search command by using eventtype and search with eventtype="xxx", it seems ok, some strange bug?

Use a lookup table rather than a long list of AND/OR expressions.
