Here is the case.
I have a syslogs that contain serial ID that represent different location. On the other hand, I have a excel sheets in csv. form that show the location name with respective serial ID.
While plotting the graph, I need the graph display the location instead of the serial ID.
May I know how to link both data together so that the graph plot is showing the location name?

Hi @jliaw ,

You could use lookup in splunk for that - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.1/Knowledge/ConfigureCSVlookups

Once you have the lookup configured, you could use it as mentioned in the example : http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.1/SearchReference/Lookup#Basic_example
