How to exclude maintenance time from my query?

Say suppose, I have a inputlookup which has start_date, end_date, start_time and end_time. This is my scheduled maintenance time. I want to include this in my main query to remove this time from this main query. How do I do that?

Use the following:

| inputlookup yourlookup
| eval earliest=strptime(End_Date + " " + End_Time,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"), latest=strptime(Start_Date + " " + Start_Time,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")
| return earliest, latest

That will give you the earliest and latest fields, and so you can pass them to your main query, like this:

Main query example

index=_internal [ 
 | inputlookup yourlookup
    | eval earliest=strptime(End_Date + " " + End_Time,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"), latest=strptime(Start_Date + " " + Start_Time,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")
    | return earliest, latest
]

I already have data in that lookup.

Say example:
