Splunk Search

Is the maxout limitation of a subsearch defined as the number of events that can be used or number of rows in the result table of my subsearch?

Hi,

is the maxout limitation of a subsearch defined as the number of events that can be used or the number of rows in the resulttable of my subsearch ( e.g. after stats or timechart command). I've seen both descriptions in the docs.

As per the documentation here, maxout attribute defines the no of events in the "output of the subsearch". If you're running a aggregate command in the subsearch, the limit will be applied on the output of the aggregate command, not on the no of rows processed/scanned.
