Hi,
I would like to get the following stats in a distributed index setup:

index name, current size of index (sum all indexers), maximum size/quota allocated, first events timestamp, last events timestamp, total retention time

Thanks
Shanker

From the result the minTime values seems inaccurate. My splunk setup is only 1 month old but the minTime is giving timestamps from year 2011, 2012 etc. Any idea why?
Thanks
