How to compare index usage for specific day within last 4 weeks?

Explorer

Hello this search query is very neat and I want to know how I can compare it with last 4 weeks based on the day of week I run this.

index=internal source=*licenseusage.log* type=Usage
| timechart span=1day sum(b) AS volume_b by idx

ie...today is Tuesday, I want to know the average index usage of the last 4 Tuesdays and compare it with today's date.

pick out the day of the week.

Motivator

Try something like this:

index=internal source=licenseusage.log type=Usage earliest=-4w@w | eval tdw=upper(strftime(now(),"%A")) | eval cdw=upper(strftime(_time,"%A")) | where cdw==tdw | timechart span=1day sum(b) AS volume_b by idx

Adding the earliest clause limits you to the last four weeks of data. The first eval clause computes today's day of the week. The second eval clause computes the day of the week for each event. Finally, the where clause compares the two and filters out data that doesn't match.
