I have a basic question about the append limit which is 50000 events max
Does it means that only the 50000 first events sorted by timestamp are displayed (from newest to oldest)?
And in some discussions, it seems that these limit could be overrided with
| sort 0
is it true or the only way to change the limit is to modify limits.conf?
sort 0 only affects the number of events in the sort, not the subsearch (which is still restricted to 50000)
You can however do multiple appends, each with a different subset of events!
