Im have a question with time functions

how do I perform a search within a 24-hour period and search hour by hour


| gentimes start=8/13/18 increment=6h
| fields starttime starthuman
| eval epoch_time=strptime(starttime,"%s")
| eval testtime=time()

how to go through this result one at a time?

@ialletex seems like what you are asking is for the map command to iterate through your results of generated time and perform some search for each.

However, it would be easier for the community to assist you better if you add more details to your question like what is the problem you are trying to solve and what does the data/field on your end looks like and what is the output you are interested in?

Please mock/anonymize any sensitive information before posting the same.
