Developing for Splunk Platform

Know CSV file size before download

Using the Splunk Python SDK, is there any way to know the size of the CSV file that will be generated after streaming and writing all the results?

I've managed to achieve this with the approach below, but it makes me to download and iterate the CSV lines two times.

splunk_job = service.jobs.create(query, **kwargs)

# waits job to be done

splunk_job_result_args = {
    "output_mode": "csv"
}

splunk_job_results = splunk_job.results(**splunk_job_result_args)
results_length = 0
for bytes_csv_line in splunk_job_results:
    results_length += len(bytes_csv_line)
splunk_job_results.close()

# checks if the results_length exceeds the limit
# if not, executes the following:

splunk_job_results = splunk_job.results(**splunk_job_result_args)
for bytes_csv_line in splunk_job_results:
    # writes the bytes in a file
splunk_job_results.close()
