Splunk Search

Does the timeline have any zoom limitations in the search bar?

Path Finder

Hi Splunker,

This is just my curiosity.

I have a lot of logs that are 99,999 in 1 millisec.

I have tried zooming in until the minimum and then I have understood that 1ms is the limit of zoom.

I think the product specification, but there is no doc to be written about it.

If someone know doc or answers, please let me know.

Regards,

As @niketnilay mentions, the smallest unit that you can zoom in to on the timeline is 1 millisecond.

Thank you for pointing out that you could not find any documentation about this.

I have added this information to the documentation here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Search/Usethetimeline#Zoom_in

@Shuhei052492 as you have observed, the smallest unit of time represented as column in the Splunk Search Timeline View seems to be 1 millisecond. The same is also available as Time Picker input as smallest time unit precision.

I have submitted a feedback to the Splunk documentation to capture this.
