Splunk Search

Can you help me find the location of a session?

New Member

I’m examining server logs where, for each session, there are several events. I’m trying to discover the country from which a session originated.

However, some of the events for a session have an IP defined and some don’t in sip field. Meaning that my current search is outputting two locations for the one session (the actual location and null) if the location is known.

index=i_s sourcetype=sess | iplocation sip | chart dc(session) by Country

And adding “dedup session “ to the query returns Unknown for sessions which should have a location.

Any help is appreciated!

I don't have the data on hand to examine your search, but you could try adding

| search Country=*

before your chart command, if you only care about sessions with a Country value.
