makeresult token

Communicator

I am making 5 tokens using below query :

     <search>
        <query>|makeresults |index=capaplan_wan_ibfs InOut="in"
    | eval Device_Interface = orig_host . ":" . Interface 
    | fields - orig_host Interface 
    | table Device_Interface  LoadDuration 
    | rex field=Device_Interface "^(?&lt;Device&gt;.*?):(?&lt;Interface&gt;.*)$" 
    | fields - Device_Interface | dedup Device | sort -LoadDuration | head 5 | table Device| transpose | rename "row 1" as device1  "row 2" as device2  "row 3" as device3  "row 4" as device4  "row 5" as device5
         </query>
        <earliest>-3mon</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
        <done>
          <set token="tokDevice1">$result.device1$</set>
          <set token="tokDevice2">$result.device2$</set>
          <set token="tokDevice3">$result.device3$</set>
          <set token="tokDevice4">$result.device4$</set>
          <set token="tokDevice5">$result.device5$</set>
        </done>
       </search>

Now i want to use these tokens in my next panel query as input like

| mstats max(_value) as "Bits_in_sec" WHERE (metric_name="*in" ) AND (host=$tokDevice1$) by host

But its not getting the input i.e. the token vaule is not getting passed. Pleasehelp

Hi @surekhasplunk,

Your search seems to be broken because you are using two generating clause in a row. Please remove makeresults as follows :

  <query>index=capaplan_wan_ibfs InOut="in"
 | eval Device_Interface = orig_host . ":" . Interface 
 | fields - orig_host Interface 
 | table Device_Interface  LoadDuration 
 | rex field=Device_Interface "^(?<Device>.*?):(?<Interface>.*)$" 
 | fields - Device_Interface | dedup Device | sort -LoadDuration | head 5 | table Device| transpose | rename "row 1" as device1  "row 2" as device2  "row 3" as device3  "row 4" as device4  "row 5" as device5
  </query>

Or if you really need to keep the results from makeresults for some reason then you will need to use append:

  <query>|makeresults |append [|index=capaplan_wan_ibfs InOut="in"]
 | eval Device_Interface = orig_host . ":" . Interface 
 | fields - orig_host Interface 
 | table Device_Interface  LoadDuration 
 | rex field=Device_Interface "^(?<Device>.*?):(?<Interface>.*)$" 
 | fields - Device_Interface | dedup Device | sort -LoadDuration | head 5 | table Device| transpose | rename "row 1" as device1  "row 2" as device2  "row 3" as device3  "row 4" as device4  "row 5" as device5
 </query>

Cheers,
David

@surekhasplunk, kindly use the formatting (code sample) for readability.

What's the use of makeresults in your search? Are you getting result for your search in your panel?

Hi @renjith.nair ,

The use of makeresult is to get the top 5 devices and set them with a token value so that i can use it in my other panel query. And i want to keep the query result hidden as well. so using makeresults

@surekhasplunk, you dont need makeresults and more over the search will throw an error.
Try executing the search in a search window and see what you get.
Just remove the |makeresults from your search and you should be getting the token set.
