Splunk Search

Query for Results count making performance worse

pasokkum
Path Finder

In the view, we have one table. We want to know the total results found for that particular search. So we used one more search on button click with the same query to get the count of the results using stats command and displaying it in a label using html javascript. Since 2 queries are running on the same time on click of search button, the performance is worse.
Is there any way to get the count of the results without using any queries?

Hello

You can use this token: $job.resultCount$: Number of results a search job returned.

That contains the value you need. So from the main search (only one) you get both things. Then you can use the token to display it the panel title for example
