This is my first time posting to the community, I hope this answer is not listed somewhere else.. if it is I have been unable to find it.
I create my own dashboards for everything and I am more or less trying to tackle my first data correlation attempt but so far have come up short.
The Dashboard I have created uses dynamically generated filters the field I am focused on at the moment is very simple; its "host" and it looks like this:
$timespan$ index=$nexusappdc$ nexussysloglevel=$nexusloglevel$ $keyword$ | chart count by host
What I want to do is use the results of this chart to run another search against other data. I will provide an example
Lets say the chart comes back with the following:
I only want my next search to contain hosts that are in that list.. here is what I have so far:
$timespan$ index=dcxxacs Address=$nexusapphost$ | top limit=50 _time, User, Address, CmdSet | fields - count - percent
I guess in my mind I see it something like the following if I were to write it out manually
$timespan$ index=dcxxacs Address=10.0.0.1 OR Address=10.0.0.2 OR Address=10.0.0.3| top limit=50 _time, User, Address, CmdSet | fields - count - percent
I hope at least some of this makes sense to some of you guys, any assistance is appreciated.
You just need to add your first search as subsearch filter in the second search. Since you're filtering based on a field name, the subsearch should return results with a field with same name (rename command added for that).
$time_span$ index=dcxx_acs [search $time_span$ index=$nexus_app_dc$ nexus_syslog_level=$nexus_loglevel$ $keyword$ | chart count by host | table host | rename host as Address ] | top limit=50 _time, User, Address, CmdSet | fields - count - percent
