Here's what I have:
base search| stats count as spamtotal by spam
This gives me:
spam / spamtotal
original / 5
crispy / 8
What I want is:
spam / eggs / count / spamtotal / ratio
original / AAA / 2 / 5 / 0.4
original / BBB / 1 / 5 ** / 0.2
crispy / CCC / 2 / **8 / 0.25
crispy / DDD / 2 / 8 / 0.25
Basically it's a ratio of count to the spamtotal, or a dynamic impact percentage. I feel like this should be easy. But
stats and eventstats isn't working for me so far. Thank you.
Try something like this...
base search | stats count as spamsubtotal by spam eggs | eventstats sum(spamsubtotal) as spamtotal by spam | eval ratio = round(spamsubtotal/spamtotal,2) | rename spamsubtotal as count
Hmm, this table is doing what I described. Unfortunately, I did not ask my question correctly. Sorry!
I'm really hoping to use tstats with something like fillnull so I can compare counts of one field with the total counts of a different field. Right now splunk is only taking the fields that have counts in common and I don't know if there's an easy argument to choose a field to get totals from.

As suggested in another thread, using eval in a count instead of 'by' clause worked for me:
search msgType=*| timechart span=1h count(eval(msgType=="IN")) as IN, count(eval(msgType="OUT")) as OUT | eval ratio=OUT/IN
