when i type in the command line (cmd not powershell): splunk search "*" -maxout 0 | find /c /v ""
I get the return of about 195k records.
however when i filter by one of the sourcetype, from one of the splunk free tutorials, by typeing: splunk search "*" 'sourcetype=e' -maxout 0 | find /c /v ""
I still get the same result of 195k records.
the "| find /c /v "" " should return only the line count. so if i filter by the sourcetype it should return around 165k records which are the number of records associated with that source type currently in my splunk db.
can someone help me correct my syntax, i tried google searches but none were able to give me an example, which I think is due to the fact I do not know how the syntax should work in the first place. I am using the windows cmd, and I plan to use the windows cmd, not the website interface, thanks for understanding.
