Splunk Search

Best way to extract _raw to a host OS of a SH programatically


We have a 3rd party pulling AWS logs as far back as AWS holds onto logs. However, we want to be able to go back further so we are looking at our AWS index in Splunk. We want to extract a full export of _raw for the entire index. We have access to the management port of our searchhead which is pointing to an indexer cluster with all of the aws index data - noting that the index is SmartStore enabled.

What's the best way to export this programmatically? It would not scale to manually run the search in the GUI and export it. We've looked at the oneshot search with js but it seems to be timing out even though we have baked in pagination.

Thanks in advance

I've got example code here for running searches - using the latest splunklib and JSONReader you can dump at high speed to disk.
