issue regarding date_wday

Explorer

| stats count by date_wday |

Hi all, above return me Friday, Monday, Saturday, Sunday, Thursday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

How can I make it to display : Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday ?

The first thing you'll use is time modifiers depending on when you are searching. For example earliest=@w1 would snap to Monday of the current week. Check it out because depending on when you do the search you'll want to control what days you are looking at.

There is an example in the docs specific to handling days of the week. Just a simple | sort -date_wday doesn't work since that will just sort alphabetically.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0/SearchReference/sort

... | eval wd=lower(Day) | eval sort_field=case(wd=="monday",1, wd=="tuesday",2, wd=="wednesday",3, wd=="thursday",4, wd=="friday",5, wd=="weekend",6) | sort sort_field | fields - sort_field

It would be a lot better to do:

... | timechart span=1d count by _time

or

... | bucket span=1d _time | stats count by _time
