I have installed the Google Maps app, I also have the MAXMIND app installed as well. When I perform a search such as: sourcetype="iis_w3c_default" | geoip c_ip, where c_ip is the fieldname with the ip address of the client connections, it will not show any results on the map.
I am running this search from within the Google Maps app. Any clues would be appreciated. Thanks.
It looks like you would want to run the command in this way from within the Google Maps app:
sourcetype=access_combined | lookup geoip clientip | geonormalize
So for your situation:
sourcetype="iis_w3c_default" | lookup geoip c_ip | geonormalize
it looks like the geoip function of lookup only supports the fields:
clientip clientcountry clientregion clientcity clientlat client_lon
So I renamed the c_ip field to clientip and still receive no results.
sourcetype="iisw3cdefault" | eval clientip=c_ip | lookup geoip clientip | geonormalize
What IP addresses are in this c_ip field exactly? Can you post some examples. Whats the result when performing the ... | geoip search in the search app?
the c_ip field contains the external IP addresses of the client upon connection.
I would rather not post exact examples since they contain secure data. I can say however that I'm not getting any fields that contain lat,long for the ip addresses when doing:
I do get clientlat,clientlon when doing:
This does not show any results on the map when in the Google Maps search.
