Compiling of Data

Communicator

Using this set of data:

Time Host Type Packets

12:00 mothra A 5
12:05 mothra A 6
12:10 mothra A 7
12:00 mothra B 100
12:05 mothra B 200
12:10 mothra B 300

I want to compile and calculate the data to come out like this:

Time Host Packet_Loss

12:10 mothra 0.03

The problem I'm having is how do I gather up all of Type=A and Type=B so I can then run
something like | eval=packetloss(typeA/typeB) ? I understand enough of splunk to gather
up this data and all. My issue is getting everything under Type=A and Type=B combined so I
can then run the math on it.

There is probably a better search to use if I knew more about your data and use case , how many host types you are dealing with , what time buckets you want to calculate the ratios over etc...

But anyhow , based purely on the data set above , this search worked. It should at least get you pointed in the right direction.I bucketed up into days , so the output is packet loss per day between those 2 host types. The streamstats command allows me to perform the ratio math on the current and previous event ie: host type A's packet sum and host type B's packet sum.

index=main sourcetype=foo | bucket _time span=1d | stats sum(packets) as total_packets by host,type,_time | streamstats window=1 global=f current=f first(total_packets) as next_total_packets | eval packet_loss=next_total_packets/total_packets | table  _time host packet_loss | tail 1

Thanks. I've give this one a try and see how things pan out. I've never used the "bucket" or "streamstats" so I'll have some new toys to play with.

Thanks,
