look at the ceiling function, it rounds up.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.6/SearchReference/CommonEvalFunctions

ceil(X), ceiling(X)
This function rounds a number X up to the next highest integer.
This example returns n=2:
... | eval n=ceil(1.9)

Hi jclemons,

I believe you can use round fucntion.

round(fieldname,2) here 2 is for 2 decimal points.

In your case round(fieldname,0)
