Is there a dedup alternative for removing identical events?

New Member

Currently my query uses dedup to remove identical events:

dedup comp_id _time

Is there an alternative to dedup to only see unique events?

The dc function just gives a count of unique values of the specified field.  It's not the same as dedup.  Try this as a dedup alternative:

stats values(*) as * by comp_id check_id _time


If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
