Contingency: no results found

New Member

I have two fields: EventCode (66 distinct values) and date_mday (28 distinct values)

But when I run:

' * | contingency EventCode date_mday '

On over 1.2M events I get no results. What am I doing wrong?

Also, suggestion: If a field is mistyped, show it in red if it doesn't exist.

I used * just to make sure I was looking at the entire event set in case I was missing something. When I changed contingency to ctable (and changed nothing else), I get the table I expected. Interesting. Thanks for your reply.

If those are indeed valid fields in the search, I'd look at the time frame. Make sure those events did occur during the selected time frame.

Could you try to give proper index/sourcetype name instead of using *??
