Splunk Search

What are the defaults for the dbinspect command?

On the Search App > Status > Index activity dashboard, there is an Index health report showing the bucket spread over time. In observation, it is reporting on the main index. This report is generated by the search "| dbinspect bins=400". The documentation could use a little more detail. Is it correct to assume the default index is main?

Yes. Well, actually the default index used is the default db which is almost always main. Note BTW that | dbinspect does not distribute, i.e., it only reports on the local server even in distributed search mode.
