Hi,

I have a problem with this query executed on 3 months

index="app" host="sl0920*" source="/home/java/jboss-eap-6.2/app/log/teller-web.log" OR source="/home/java/jboss-eap-6.2/app/log/desktop-web.log" priority="FATAL" category="AUDIT*" message="{Invoking*" | eval date = strftime(_time, "%Y-%m-%d") | stats count as Contatore by message,correlationId,date | where Contatore > 1 | eval tot = Contatore/2 | chart sum(tot) as tot by date

Is it possible rewrite the same query with a query with better performances please ?

I don't see anything obviously bad about the code. When possible, you want to avoid reformatting data at the event level before the data is summarized, and a numeric field (or epoch time field) is more efficient for summary than a display field, but you at least need to bin the _time at the 1d level, so we can't avoid a reformat completely.

Try this, and see what happens. There might be a marginal improvement.

 index="app" host="sl0920*" (source="/home/java/jboss-eap-6.2/app/log/teller-web.log" OR source="/home/java/jboss-eap-6.2/app/log/desktop-web.log") priority="FATAL" category="AUDIT*" message="{Invoking*" 
| table _time, message, correlationId
| bin _time as date  span=1d
| stats count as Contatore by message, correlationId, date 
| where Contatore > 1 
| eval tot = Contatore/2
| eval date = strftime(_time, "%Y-%m-%d")  
| chart sum(tot) as tot by date

I'm tempted to try a timechart version, but without your data, I have no way of knowing if it would get better results.

@spillo491... do you get any result when you run 1st 4 lines of DalJeanis' code?

On a different thought... If you have too many events to be handled in 30 days... You can actually try summary index.

Did you miss .conf21 Virtual?

Good news! The event's keynotes and many of its breakout sessions are now available online, and still totally FREE!
