I have two query with same source , index with differnt time (once current day, other one pevious week day), i want to substract the current day minus previous day. below is the query i could write , i want to eliminate the join for better performance.

I'm not sure how your join is functioning at all at the moment since you don't have a field specified in it and the _time field on your subsearch in the join will be last week's timestamp so it won't line up with the _time field on your main search. I believe the overall concept you have is sound though. If you use union instead of join it should provide a bit better performance and you won't run into the problem of the subsearch being stopped after 30 seconds. I did tweak your second search a bit so it makes the _time field of last weeks data line up with the current time field so the subsequent stats that joins the two data sets together will function.

Thank You for the reposne..

I could fix this .... thanks for the comments you added that helped me understanding the issue and i have extracted "Time" from _time and then i performed the search i.e join on the "Time" and it worked.

If you see my search query above , i did join on "Time".
