## Alert based on evaluating two time ranges

Path Finder

I am trying to send alerts based on the following criteria:

Last 15-20 mins: Measure avg(field1) --> value1 Last 10-15 mins: Measure avg(field1) --> value2

Calculate the % change between value1 and value2:

diff = (value2-value1)*100/value1

If diff is more than X percent than I need to send an alert notification.

How can I do this in one search command?

In the TimeRangePicker, choose 'custom time', then go to 'advanced'.

Enter the following as your timerange.

earliest = `-20min@min`

latest = `-10min@min`

And here's a search that will work:

`<your search terms> | eval period=if(_time<relative_time(now(), "-15min@min"),"older_period", "recent_period") | eval foo=1 | chart avg(field1) over foo by period | eval diff = (recent_period-older_period)*100/older_period | where diff>X`

Then save the search, click the 'schedule this search' box, and tell splunkd that if the search returns 1 or more rows, that you want it to send you an email.

here's another different search that will work too, although you have to use the same timerange

`<your search terms> | timechart avg(field1) as avg span=5min | transpose | search column=avg | rename "row 1" as "older_period" | rename "row 2" as "recent_period" | eval diff = (recent_period-older_period)*100/older_period | where diff>X`
