Splunk Search

Count is incorrect

Trying to write a simple query in Splunk 7.0. The idea is that it would count all the unique ip addresses based on a specific location. So my query would look like this:

splunk index="some index" sourcetype="some sourcetype" earliest=-24h
stats count(ip) by location

After 100 rows, and (by my eyes) at least 12 unique addresses... it counts 5. So instead of:

  • location a ... 6
  • location b ... 10
  • location c ... 5

I get

  • location x ... 5

What gives?

Okay... apparently verbose search really is slowing down my search.
