Linux failed login attempts

Path Finder

Hi all,

What is the search to find out the total failed login attempts in Linux? I donot want to use *nix app for this. I am getting the logs from /var/log/secure.
Please help.

You will want to look at the Search Language guide. This question is very broad, and with no indication of what your data looks like. You could try source=/var/log/secure login failed and see what happens, but really you should refer to the Search Tutorial and go from there.
