About searching with time

Time is crucial for determining what went wrong. You often know when something happened, if not exactly what happened. By looking at events that happened around the same time that something went wrong, can help correlate results and find the root cause of the problem.

Running searches with overly-broad time ranges wastes system resources and produces more results than you really need.

This section discusses how to use time to narrow your search.
