Hi, i was trying to create a sourcetype for log to metrics data type but not getting what to put in measures section in metrics tab. My raw data contains _time, IP, Staus, Time, URL ? Can anyone tell me what fields need to be put as measures in this section?

I think you shouldn't convert this type of events to metrics. Metrics should have some numeric fields to be useful.
