Hi Splunkers,

I"m working on a report where I have to write report on hosts that are not reported for a week.

I used metadata to get all the hosts last reported time.


time                                    host
1/3/2021                          a1
1/3/2021                          b1
28/2/2021                       c1
27/2/2021                       d1
24/2/2021                       e1
22/2/2021                        f1
22/2/2021                        g1

How can I edit the field time to report  hosts on 22/2/2021 (f1 and g1) ? Your answer would be helpful

Thanks in advance.

First, we need to convert the time field to epoch form so we can compare it.  Then we'll compare that value to the epoch time for 7 days ago, which we create using the relative_time function.

... | eval etime=strptime(time, "%d/%m/%Y"), sevenDaysAgo=relative_time(now(), "-7d")
| where etime < sevenDaysAgo
