How to count all events in a metric index?

Hi

I have a metric index that has multiple metric coming into it.

I know i can run a command like this, but i have over 20 different types of metrics and they might change over time. I know i cant run count(*) as you have to specify.

 

 

| mstats count("mx.process.cpu.utilization") as count WHERE "index"="murex_metrics" span=10s | stats count

 

 

 

Then I tried, however, if the data is the same it will only give you a unique not a correct count. 

 

 

| mpreview index=murex_metrics | stats count

 

 

 

So is there any command that will give me the stats count of a metric index quickly?

Use this | mstats count(_value) as total where metric_name = "*"  AND  Index = metric_index span=you_want 


To understand what is count(_value) will do please read this 

Syntax:
 count(_value) | <function>(_value) [AS <string>] WHERE metric_name=<metric_name>Description: Specify a basic count of the _value field or a function on the _value field. The _value field uses a specific format to store the numeric value of the metric. You can specify one or more functions. Y
