We are just trying to handle a worst case where number of events crosses 50,000.
I am using python "splunk.search.dispatch" as below
searchjob = splunk.search.dispatch("search index=our_index earliest=-7d@d",sessionKey=sessionkey,hostPath=self.baseurl,maxEvents=30000000)
After the job is done job status contain
eventAvailableCount as 646890
eventCount as 646890
After that when i use, searchjob.getFeed to get result in csv mode as below
It only return 50,000 events. But it should return 646890 events.
Please let me know whether I have to pass any additional arguments to getFeed method.. or is there any other way to achieve my requirement
Below Code helped me to get my requirement
searchjob = splunk.search.dispatch("searchquery",sessionKey=sessionkey,hostPath=baseurl,earliestTime=earliestTime,latestTime=latestTime,maxEvents=30000000)
resultCount = searchjob.resultCount
offsetValue = 0
searchresults = ""
while offsetValue < resultCount:
searchresults = searchresults + str(searchjob.getFeed(mode='results', outputMode='csv',count=49999,offset=offsetValue))
offsetValue = offsetValue + 49999
Pagination while reading the result from job helped me. Thanks
