Embodiments are directed are towards a method for generating a query response, which comprises creating two or more partitions of event records from raw data stored in a data store, wherein each event record in the two or more partitions of event records includes a portion of the raw data and is associated with a time stamp derived from the raw data. The method also comprises generating a summarization table for each partition of the two or more partitions that: (a) identifies a field value comprising a value that corresponds to an associated field extracted from a respective event record; and (b) for the field value, includes a posting value to the respective event record within a respective partition. The method further comprises generating partial results for a received query using summarization tables in the partitions and generating a response to the query by combining the partial results.

Methods and apparatus consistent with the invention provide the ability to organize and build understandings of machine data generated by a variety of information-processing environments. Machine data is a product of information-processing systems (e.g., activity logs, configuration files, messages, database records) and represents the evidence of particular events that have taken place and been recorded in raw data format. In one embodiment, machine data is turned into a machine data web by organizing machine data into events and then linking events together.

Techniques and mechanisms are disclosed to optimize the size of index files to improve use of storage space available to indexers and other components of a data intake and query system. Index files of a data intake and query system may include, among other data, a keyword portion containing mappings between keywords and location references to event data containing the keywords. Optimizing an amount of storage space used by index files may include removing, modifying and/or recreating various components of index files in response to detecting one or more storage conditions related to the event data indexed by the index files. The optimization of index files generally may attempt to manage a tradeoff between an efficiency with which search requests can be processed using the index files and an amount of storage space occupied by the index files.
