Monitoring Splunk

Splunk dashboard


Hi Team,

When I did below search, I am getting the count of event details under "Null" column name. 

index=main|search query|timechart span=5m count by events 


_time                     Null

06/10/2021.        200

But instead of column name as null, I need some other alias name.How to do that?

Is this Null value expected? It seems that the "events" field is not find in your search results and because of this it is returning the results as Null.

If this value is expected and you want to rename the Null column you could append the following to your search.


| rename Null as <field_alias>
