Splunk Search

Build Event Type search char limitation

vlapeintuit

I am creating several event types and have found when adding searches longer than 98 char it trims the rest off. Is there a way to increase the char limit for the field? Here is an example of a search string

index="****" sourcetype="***********" "**********************" AND "********" AND "************** <******>"

I get cut off at the <.

(actual text replaced with *)

I can't reproduce the issue. I am using the following builds of Splunk:

Splunk version 4.1.4 build 82143
Splunk version 4.1.6 build 89596

I tried with a 111-character search, as well as your sample with the *'s replaced by text.

Are you running Firefox, or another browser? I'm using Firefox 3.6.4

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
