Splunk Search

How to make my search fast when searching field names?


Hi Dears,

When I search only IPs without field names in Firewall indexes search is fast, like:

index="EX" "X.X.X.X" OR "X.X.X.X" OR X.X.X.X" OR X.X.X.X" OR X.X.X.X"

But when I include field name as in below, the search takes a lot of time specially in Firewall index. (Though I believe it should take less time from above search because it searches for only specific field).

index="EX" dest_ip="X.X.X.X"OR dest_ip="X.X.X.X" OR dest_ip="X.X.X.X" OR dest_ip="X.X.X.X" OR dest_ip="X.X.X.X"

Please your support.

Best Regards,
