Getting logs for after hours access

Path Finder

Hello,

I want to be able to get logs from Splunk for anyone who came in to the building between 7PM and 7AM the next morning, and search back for the last 30 days but I'm having a difficult time finding out how to do it.

I've tried this:

index="main" source="accesscontrol.csv" | timechart count by User

But it truncates it down to just a few users and adds the rest of the users as "other". I'd just like a table of all users who were in the building between those hours.

Thanks!

Ken

Can you post an example of what is located in accesscontrol.csv?

If you want a table, a timechart is probably not the route you want to take. You might want to do something like this:

index="main" source="accesscontrol.csv" 
| eval access_hour=strftime(_time,"%H")
| where ( access_hour >= 19 OR access_hour < 7  ) 
| table _time,User

or directly date_hour.

index="main" source="accesscontrol.csv" (date_hour <7 OR date_hour>=19)
| stats count values(date_hour) AS list_of_hours by User

If I wanted to get the count per user would the following be correct:

index="main" source=accesscontrol.csv"
| eval accesshour=strftime(time,"%H") | where ( accesshour >= 19 OR accesshour < 7 )

| table _time,User | top 10 User showperc=false

Thx
