Need help to compare a CSV file with an index

Contributor

Hi,
I need to compare the field host of my CSV file with the field host of my index.
I used the search below but I have no results.
What is wrong, please!

| inputlookup test.csv 
| lookup test.csv HOSTNAME as host output SITE STATUS 
| join host 
    [ search index=tutu] 
| stats values(SITE) as SITE, values(STATUS) as STATUS by host

This is doing a join on an entire index which is unnecessary. Here is how you want to do it.

index=tutu 
    [| inputlookup test.csv 
    | rename HOSTNAME as host 
    | fields host] 
| lookup test.csv HOSTNAME as host output SITE STATUS 
| stats values(SITE) as SITE, values(STATUS) as STATUS by host

line 1 is fetching data from your index tutu
line 2-4 is a subquery which filters your data to only those hosts present in the file
line 5 is then doing a lookup and fetching the site and status and line 6 is your stats which is summarizing these

Hope this helps.
Cheers

Hi,

Please try below query.

index=tutu
| stats count by host
| fields - count
| inputlookup test2.csv append=t
| eval host=lower(host)
| stats count, values(SITE) as SITE, values(STATUS) as STATUS by host

If you want to see only those host which are matching with lookup only then you can try below query.

index=tutu
| stats count by host
| fields - count
| lookup test2.csv host OUTPUT

Can you please share your expected output?
Meanwhile try by replacing lookup command with below one.
