Putting 20 host names in a tag and searching

Path Finder

I have 20 host names and I want to use tags.

I've been doing my searches host=X OR host=Y OR host=Z, but I want to use tags instead since it is much easier on the eyes in a search string.

Let's say I create a tag called xyz with host=X, host=Y, host=Z.

To search on this, I am trying to use "tag=xyz | stats count by host" but I am getting no results. I have also tried searching "tag::host=xyz | stats count by host" and I am still getting no results.

What am I doing wrong here?

If you search for tag=xyz with no stats command, do you see any results?
If you search for any of the hosts you have tagged, do your results show that your hosts are tagged?

I'm not seeing the tag.. when just doing a host=X...

Also, is there a limit on how many hosts can be in the tag?

The simplest thing to do is to create an eventtype There will be a field called Search string where you paste your search and a field called Tag(s) where you paste your tag name. Done!
