Alerting

Search Query - Alert

Explorer

Hi ,
I have a query which returns 5 events ( basically 5 files gets transferred) . I need to send an alert once all 5 files are transferred - meaning as soon as the event count is 5 , alert should be triggered. IS the below query good enough for such scneario ?

Should I write like index=* X y | stats count by FileName | where count=5

Does only success populate the event?

So while setting up Alert - should I mention Trigger Alert when Number of Results is greater than 4. OR will the query takes care of it.

I am little confused .

alert
