[subsearch]: Subsearch produced 1313901 results, truncating to maxout 50000

I am getting subsearch error while using the join command in my search. I have to use join command to connect 2 sources and show the result. I have tried configuring limits.conf using following parameters in my search heads and indexers, but still getting this error for the query :

index=yammer sourcetype=yammer_messages replied_to_id=null |eval _time=strftime(_time,"%d-%m-%Y") |join sender_id
[search index=yammer sourcetype=yammer_references type=user |rename id as sender_id
|table sender_id full_name email]|rename _time as date|table date,email,id|dedup id|eval point = 10

[subsearch]: Subsearch produced 1313901 results, truncating to maxout 50000.

I have configured below settings in limits.conf for indexers and search head, did splunk restart, but still issue not resolved. Please help resolve the issue:

[subsearch]
# Maximum number of results to return from a subsearch.
maxout = 3000000

[join]
subsearch_maxout = 3000000
subsearch_maxtime = 60
subsearch_timeout = 120

Hi, @pgadhari
It is not necessary to join or subsearch.
By the way, is full_name required?

Skip the subsearch and the join entirely; try this:

index="yammer" AND ((sourcetype="yammer_messages" AND replied_to_id="null") OR (sourcetype="yammer_references" type="user
"))
| eval sender_id = if(sourcetype="yammer_references", id, sender_id)
| fields _time email id sender_id
| stats min(_time) AS date values(*) AS * BY sender_id
| fieldformat date=strftime(_time,"%d-%m-%Y")
| table date, email, id
| dedup id
| eval point = 10

Sure. I will try it out. But I am facing some weird issue in the search. Sometimes the events are getting skipped, i think so ?

when i run search first time, the event count shows as proper like 5, but again when I run the same search the count shows 3 - the timelines are same for both searches. Have u faced this issue before ?

Are you running this in real time, or as a saved search?
