send to background

send to background

verb

The act of making a currently running search run "in the background" while you work on other projects in the "foreground" of the Search view. When a backgrounded search finishes running, Splunk Web displays a notification.

Sending a search to the background saves the resulting search job for seven days, exactly as if you had saved the search job from within the Job Manager.
