@the_wolverine, Try the following run anywhere search based on Splunk's _internal index (x is date_second and y is component)
index="_internal" sourcetype="splunkd" log_level!="INFO" component!="ConfContentsCache"
| stats list(date_second) as date_second by component
| eval latest=mvindex(date_second,0), previous=mvindex(date_second,1)
| fillnull value=0 latest previous
