I create new script for you. http://pastebin.com/JusgWRMy

Usage: ./splunk cmd python rem_dupl_event_spec_date.py <index> <earliest_date> <latest_date>
earliest_date & latest_date syntax: %m/%d/%Y:%H:%M:%S

For example:

./splunk cmd python rem_dupl_event_spec_date.py test 05/20/2011:0:0:0 05/24/2011:23:59:59

Hmm... I believe this script it a bit dangerous. What happens, if you have 3 events (one unique and two, which is duplicates) within the same second? Then the script will delete one of the duplicates AND the single unique event, right?

Really like this. Is there a way for it to only look at a source or sourcetype within a given index?

Found it..
Edited the script and added to line 56 (starting with search1) earliest= latest dates :
"search1 = 'search index=' + index + 'earliest=129461760 latest=1294704000 | ..."

I don't know Perl , anyone knows how to add these dates as parameters ?
