Splunk Search

Time modifiers in a subsearch

I have a subsearch that I only want to look for the last 15 minutes. All I find are examples of days. Can someone give me examples of minutes, as well as days, months, and so on (for future reference)? Please be sure to put some of it inline, in case the link goes dead (if you reference a URL).

bye.

Thanks but you should really try to add some of the URL content in the body. Often, I find (other sites even more so) the link goes dead. Therefore, the answer is useless. I've found quite a few links so far on Answers that either gave me the equivalent to a 404 or just the main support page.

Fair enough but you did not give enough of your own context for us to give any kind of a specific answer. I verified the links before posting them.

twinspop did just fine.

Yes, but links go dead eventually. They're live now, but not a guarantee a year from now. Just take for example links from Microsoft. I can't tell you the number of those that went dead or redirected.

To be fair Splunk Docs links are very good - they only go 'dead' if a feature is deprecated from the 'latest' documentation branch.

It would be great if they would redirect deprecated features though!

Yes, they should never "delete" or remove docs. There should always be a reason given, and an alternative given (such as when a method is deprecated).
