Hi Girish,

----SPL Query-----

Once you have your failed login events, you can use the stats command to group them by user and count the number of failures. It'll be something like this:

<your search for failed logins> | stats count, dc(machine) as machines by user | where (count > <some number>) AND (machines > 1)
If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
