i am working in a environment which has three (almost similar) source types. i want to know which type of data is going into these and if possible i want to differentiate the data. i want to have a single source type instead of three.
hope this makes sense.
sorry..!! what are you trying to tell ? is there a problem with the question? if there is a problem, please correct me..!!
@japala Writing in all caps on forums is referred to as "yelling" as it reads as if it's being shouted and considered bad form. For example, this is normal text, BUT THIS IS WAY TOO LOUD AND COULD BE READ AS ANGRY. If you could edit your question to have closer to normal capitalization that would be much easier to read and be understood.
As you're editing you could clarify did you run a search for these sourcetypes? Why did that not show you what data is going into these sourcetypes? Could you give more clarity as to what you're wanting to change and why?
Yes. Give each a similar but distinct sourcetype such as
MYRUDEALLCAPSTYPE3. Then rename each of these 3 sourcetypes to a common one like
MYRUDEALLCAPSTYPE as described below. You can always distinguish them again later by using field
_sourcetype to access the original values.
