How to create a dashboard view with status indicators on a bubble graph?

Contributor

I have a view that is thought to be useful for providing a information to our users.
I have no idea if this can be achieved in Splunk.
The need is that we display the failure points based on log data and then user should be able to drill down on click at that point.
Also it would be great if an error message can be displayed too.

Here is some sample data that can be used for generating this view.
File1 belongs to App1
File2 belongs to App2
File3 belongs to App3

the application status should be shown based on the failures. Fails are identified by an Error() string.
Note that the third file is a Error dump and not actually a structured log.

File1:
