Can't Extract Multiple Custom Fields

New Member


I'm trying to extract each of the 16 values following the "Latency:" string into 16 separate fields and then export the fields to a CSV file. The default extraction doesn't seem to extract them, so I used IFX to generate a Latency field, but that contained all 16 values in a single string, again, not what I need.

I'm struggling with breaking out the 16 individual fields. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

What I would probably do is, in a search string, add:

| rex field=_raw "Latency: (?<Field1>\d*) (?<Field2>\d*) (?<Field3>\d*) (?<Field4>\d*) (?<Field5>\d*) (?<Field6>\d*) (?<Field7>\d*) (?<Field8>\d*) (?<Field9>\d*) (?<Field10>\d*) (?<Field11>\d*) (?<Field12>\d*) (?<Field13>\d*) (?<Field14>\d*) (?<Field15>\d*) (?<Field16>\d*)" | table Field1 Field2 Field3 Field4 Field5 Field6 Field7 Field8 Field9 Field10 Field11 Field12 Field13 Field14 Field15 Field16 

You can also put the first part in your props.conf, via:

EXTRACT-SixteenFields = Latency: (?<Field1>\d*) (?<Field2>\d*) (?<Field3>\d*) (?<Field4>\d*) (?<Field5>\d*) (?<Field6>\d*) (?<Field7>\d*) (?<Field8>\d*) (?<Field9>\d*) (?<Field10>\d*) (?<Field11>\d*) (?<Field12>\d*) (?<Field13>\d*) (?<Field14>\d*) (?<Field15>\d*) (?<Field16>\d*)

And then it will be automatically extracted for you.
