I would like to know what does "Size" stands for Job Manager in ver 5.0.5.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Yu, that's the size on disk, used on the search head, for the search results. The results are only kept for 10 minutes by default but users can extend that to 7 days and potentially use a lot of space.

I ran a search that took several hours to complete. The job manager shows the size on disk as 8MB, but when I download it, it's well over a GB in size. So the size listed in the Jobs window does not represent the true size of the results for whatever reason.
