VariableSCHEDULED_SEARCH_BACKFILL_LIMIT
Introduced Version1.19
DescriptionSCHEDULED_SEARCH_BACKFILL_LIMIT Environment Variable
Default5

Controls the global maximum backfill limit for scheduled searches. In cases where a scheduled search cannot be executed, such as if Humio is shut down, Humio will try to backfill missed searches one at a time from oldest to newest. With this parameter you can set the global limit for how many searches to backfill. User's are also able to set a backfill limit for each individual search, but this is not allowed to exceed the limit defined below.

If this global limit is to -1 the backfill limit on a scheduled search will take precedence. If this global limit is changed, such that the limit set on a scheduled search then exceeds the new global limit, then the backfill will be capped at this new global limit.
