I have the following search which outputs summarized data in 4 hours chunks perfectly:
source="MySocket" NOT ServiceName="Private Service"| eval search = if(eventtype="search",CounterValue,0)|eval browse = if(eventtype="browse",CounterValue,0)|eval tracks = if(eventtype="tracks",CounterValue,0)|eval play_seconds_val = if(eventtype="play_seconds",CounterValue,0)| eval play_error_val = if(eventtype="play_errors",CounterValue,0) | eval play_error_adj_val = if(eventtype="play_error_adjusted",CounterValue,0)| eval play_errors_total = play_error_val - play_error_adj_val | eval browse_errors=if(eventtype="browse_error",CounterValue, 0) | eval search_errors=if(eventtype="search_error",CounterValue, 0)| eval other_errors = search_errors + browse_errors|bin _time span=4h | stats sum(search) as Search sum(browse) as Browse sum(tracks) as Tracks sum(play_seconds_val) as PlaySeconds sum(other_errors) as OtherErros sum(play_errors_total) as PlayErrorsTotal distinct_count(HouseholdId) as Households by _time ServiceName
However when I try to use HiddenPostProcess with this to generate different charts and single value fields I am getting invalid field errors.
Here are a couple examples of what I am trying to do with prost process: stats sum(Households) - this is for a single value field it fails saying illegal timechart span=1d sum(play_seconds_val) by ServiceName useother="f" - for a chart, produces no results timechart span=1d PlaySecnds by ServiceName useother="f" - for a chart, errors saying it must be in the form <func>(<field>)
I cannot do the summarization step in post processing because the search will return more than 10,000 results. Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this?
stats sum(Households) should work, that is unless the main search is completely empty.
What 'illegal' message did that return? Can you paste it in?
As to the second postProcess, timechart span=1d sum(play_seconds_val) by ServiceName useother="f" -
Well this wont work because the final results for your base search doesn't have a field called play_seconds_val. You renamed it to PlaySeconds.
And the third postProcess, for one thing there's a typo -- PlaySecnds instead of PlaySeconds, and for a second problem indeed you need to have a function argument like distinct_count() or sum() or max(). You can't just specify raw field names.
