How to check for data that is not present in csv lookup

Path Finder

I have DHCP logs and a csv which contains hostnames of devices..

I need to check the DHCP logs for the hostnames that are not present in the csv lookup list.

Can you please suggest a query to perform this check without using subsearch? CSV has some 55K rows

Assuming your DHCP logs contain a field called host and the CSV file contains a field called hostname, your query could look like this:

your DHCP log search that contains host field
| lookup device_hostname_lookup.csv hostname AS host OUTPUT hostname AS flag
| where isnull(flag)

This is performing a lookup for the field host in the source log, matching to hostname in the CSV and - if there is a match - adding a field called flag to the source event. The final line filters out any events that contain the field flag (removing all events that had matching hostnames in the CSV file).

Can you try

| lookup dhcp_hosts hostname OUTPUT hostname as filter
| where is null(filter)
