Hi,

Getting below mentioned error while executing splunk query.

QUERY:

index=lsc_exacta_index source="L:\\ProgramData\\Bastian Software\\Logs\\ExactaImport\\ExactaImport.txt"
| rex field=_raw ".* Order \[(?<imWho>[\d-]+) - .*\] successfully assigned.*"
| rex field=_raw "\.* Bastian\.Exacta\.Interface\.Processes\.ExactaProductTranslatorBase - Validation of Message Successfull, Prepare to Insert\n.*ROWS ONLY;\@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\'.*\[.*"
| rex field=_raw ".*\/line id \[(?<imWho>[\d-]+) -.* was cancelled successfully.\n.*"
| rex field=_raw ".*\[Import Pick Orders\].*ROWS ONLY;@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\' \[.*(\n|.)*- Messages processed successfully.*"
| eval exactaDocTime = strftime(_time, "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S")
| search imWho !=""
| eval exactaDocStatus = if(exactaDocTime != "","Created",NA)
| table imWho exactaDocTime exactaDocStatus

 

Help me to optimize regex used in above mentioned query to avoid error mentioned in screenshot.

Thanks

Hi, Giuseppe

Thanks for your response.

I have resolved the regex issue replacing fourth regex of query with below mentioned regex.

rex field=_raw ".*\[Import Pick Orders\].*ROWS ONLY;@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\' \[[\S\s]*- Messages processed successfully.*"

Thanks

Hi @Abhineet,

you have to reduce the lenght of the second regex, maybe in this way it should still work:

| rex "ExactaProductTranslatorBase - Validation of Message Successfull, Prepare to Insert\n.*ROWS ONLY;\@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\'.*\[.*"

or

| rex "Prepare to Insert\n.*ROWS ONLY;\@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\'.*\[.*"

ciao.

Hi Giuseppe,

As per error issue is with regex mentioned below.

| rex field=_raw ".*\[Import Pick Orders\].*ROWS ONLY;@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\' \[.*(\n|.)*- Messages processed successfully.*" 

we have to capture two string "[Import Pick Orders]" and "Messages processed successfully" both the string are available in 130 lines  single event.

Both the string are in two separate line.

between those two string there are multiple line.

Below mentioned is sample event. green highlighted are string and red highlighted need to capture in variable <imWho>

I have omitted 100's of line in between.

SAMPLE EVENT:

The fact that all the lines are in a single event helps.

| streamstats count as event
| multikv noheader=t
| fields _time _raw event
| rex field=_raw ".*\[Import Pick Orders\].*ROWS ONLY;@p0 = \'(?<imWho>[\d-]+)\'"
| rex field=_raw ".*\[Import Pick Orders\].*- (?<success>Messages processed successfully).*"
| stats list(_raw) as _raw values(imWho) as imWho values(success) as success by event
| where isnotnull(imWho) AND isnotnull(success)
| eval _raw=mvjoin(_raw,"
")

Hi @Abhineet,

you can manage the multiline adding "(?ms)" to the start of your regex.

there's a thing that I don't understand in your requirement:

The green string must be used to filter events or must be extracted as fields?

if they want to use them only to filter events, you don't need to put them in the regex, you can use the in the main search to filter your events.

Instead the red string can be extracted as field with the regex.

Ciao.
