hi all,

May i know if there is a function to get the system current weekday ?

for example, the system time ="2015-09-09 10:00:00" but what i want is wednesday,because i just want to show those results. my thing command: where weekday= relative_time(now(),"%A"), but it is not working, currently i just use where weekday="@w3" in command, but till tomorrow, i need change it to Thursday manually. that is why i want to get the system current weekday, so it can change automatically.

Please kindly help this, thanks

Best Regards

Hi hqw,

you can get the current day and use it in your search like this:

index=_internal | eval weekday=strftime(now(),"%A") | stats count by weekday

or like this:

index=_internal earliest=0 | eval weekday=strftime(now(),"%A") | eval weekday=lower(weekday) | where date_wday=weekday | stats count by weekday

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
