Using Timewrap to compare yesterday to today per hour

Motivator

I have the following search as I'm trying to compare yesterday's count to today's count per hour and I am seeing events per hour for latest_day, but no events per hour for today

index=foo
| timechart count span=1h
| timewrap 1d

Is the fact that I have the span set to 1h and timewrap set to 1d an issue?

Here is what I see:

I know this sounds dumb, but is your time frame set to something longer than 1 day? If you have your time frame set to one day, that's exactly what it'll do. Try changing it to "last 7 days" or something.
and latest_day means today 1day_before means yesterday and so on
let me know if this solves your problem:

happy splunking 🙂

Not dumb at all as I'm sure that has killed many search!

I do have the time picker set to "Last 24 hours". Changing it to "Last 7 days," I'm still not seeing what I would expect. It's not breaking down yesterday's event count per hour, just providing an overall count for the day.

Apologizes as diving into this more I finally realized your point on making sure the time picker is set correctly. Once I got that right, everything worked expected.

Thx again for the help!
