Hi

I have a lot of alerts in my Splunk apps

Is there a way to count the number of alerts returning result by days, by month...

Is it possible ?

Thanks

Sorry, I left that out of my original reply.  The number of results is in the result_count field.  If the alert did anything, then the alert_actions field is not empty.

If an alert fired (was triggered), it will be in the output of this command

| rest splunk_server=local /servicesNS/-/-/alerts/fired_alerts | search title!="-"

Start with this query and modify as necessary to suit your requirements.  Note that, by default, the _internal index only has 30 days of day so there may no "by month".

index=_internal source=*scheduler.log* savedsearch_name=* sourcetype=scheduler alert_actions!=""

Is alert_actions is the field that an alert has generated a result?

alert_actions!=

 If yes, if i want to count the alerts actions, its enough to do a stats count(alert_actions) ?
