Splunk Search

Error in "sort" command


I have a search in which I am sorting my data based on "Location" field:

my search | sort Location + desc

My result is having 13,000 lines but I am getting only 10,000 lines as my result along with some msg:

sort is trucating only 10,000 rows

Could you please let me know how to solve this "sort" problem so that it should take all the lines in my result

Please help

Thanks in Advance

Re: Error in "sort" command


That is no error. A quick look in the docs entry for the sort command (http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/SearchReference/sort ) would have given you this:

sort [<count>] (<sort-by-clause>)+ [desc] 


Syntax: <int> 
Description: Specify the number of results to sort. If no count is specified, the default limit of 10000 is used. If "0" is specified, all results will be returned.
