Refine your search:

Can someone clarify what is meant by a "period"? Context is this:

"* If the integer is followed by the letter 'p' the ttl is interpreted as a multiple of the scheduled search's period."

I would interpret this as, if my scheduled search runs once per hour and I specify a period of 10p, that would mean my search artifact would survive for 10 hours.

One Answer:

Yes this is the meaning.

if a search runs every hour ( cron 0 * * ) with a ttl of 10p ( 10 periods), will store the results for 10 hours. FYI the default ttl is 2p.
