The time difference between 2 events in Splunk can be calculated using the "timechart" command. This command can be used to create a chart that displays the time difference between two events in a selected time range. To calculate the time difference between two events, the "range" function can be used along with the "timechart" command. The syntax for using "timechart" command is:

| timechart span=1d sum(fieldname) as fieldname | eval timediff=range(fieldname)

Here, "span=1d" specifies the time range for the chart (in this case, one day). "fieldname" should be replaced with the name of the field that contains the timestamp for the events. "timediff" is a calculated field that contains the time difference between the events.
