I've looked at a lot of the duration posts (covering transaction, streamstats, etc.) -- generally these deal with very particular events, so I'm having some trouble generalizing to look at all of our durations (to then chart out ranges of durations, etc).
All of our events have a userId (unique GUID), and then a sessionID (counts up from 1 for every new user).
The durations I am interested in are: given each userID/sessionID combo, there should be one instance (event) where eventName=Start, and one instance where eventName=End, so duration is the timestamp of the End event - timestamp of the Start event.
There is no dateTime field within our event - just using the event Timestamp in Splunk associated with each event.
I would appreciate any advice on assembling this into a table/report of duration data that would cover all UserId/SessionId combos
Yes, this gets me past the first big hurdle, thank you!
Looks like from here I can play around with different visualization options. I'll do some further research into putting these results into "bins" (like "<30 sec", "30-60 sec", etc.) to then build a histogram.
