How to substract two fields on epoch

Emp
Explorer

Hi,

I tried to find answers on the forum but I didn't find any working solutions.

 

I had two fields with "hour / minute / second" like:

TReceived > 17:13:10

TSent > 17:12:20

 

I'm trying to substract TSent from TReceived and put it into a table.

I did something like :

| eval start=strptime(TSent, "%H:%M:%S.%N"), end=strptime(TReceived, "%H:%M:%S.%N")

| eval difference=end-start

|table end,start,difference

 

As a result, I correctly have something on the "end" and "star" column but "difference" stays empty.

Am I missing something?

Thanks.

Your query is working.

| makeresults 
| eval TReceived="17:13:10", TSent="17:12:20" 
| eval start=strptime(TSent, "%H:%M:%S.%N"), end=strptime(TReceived, "%H:%M:%S.%N") 
| eval difference=end-start 
| table end,start,difference

I didn't know the "makeresults" command. Seems easier to check with this.

 

On my side, my request is a bit more complicated but in the end, my "diff" column was still empty with this exact command |eval difference=end-start.

With your confirmation that the request was working correctly, I found the solution and it was a simple mistake...

My "eval" command was before the "table" command and couldn't work.

I changed the order and now it's working perfectly.

 

It wasn't so much but thanks, it helps me a lot to clear my mind 😉
