report cannot be accelerated

I have tried below sample search for acceleration but they are not allowed.

 

index="_internal"| table host source
index=_internal|streamstats sum(bytes) as byte by sourcetype|stats count by host source byte

 


as per splunk docs, it should contain transforming commands and I hope table is transforming commands. so first query  should be able to accelerate but it won't accelerate.
Can you please help me to understand why those searches are not allowed to be accelerated?

Thanks

What error message do you get when you try to accelerate them?

Yeah, that's not a helpful error message.  See the docs at https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.1/Report/Acceleratereports#How_reports_qualify_for_... for reasons why a report can't be accelerated.  Share the search if you need extra eyes to check it.

@ips_mandar what version of Splunk are you using?

 

Report Acceleration has been problem in Splunk for awhile, as nobody seems to use the feature – see https://community.splunk.com/t5/Reporting/Splunk-8-0-2-report-acceleration-broken-for-reports-using/...for more details.
