Hi all,

I have some statistical log like:
Unit Type (M) Used Rqs Size (K) Rqs Rqs

 1  4326    35165  63.4     .1       5.8     .0     .1
 2  4326    35165  63.4     .2       9.8     .1     .1
 3  4326    17582  77.4     .1       6.3     .0     .1
 4  4326    35165  63.4     .2       8.5     .0     .1
 5  4326    17582  77.4     .1       5.1     .0     .1
 6  4326    35165  63.4     .2       8.1     .0     .2

I used multikv to extract it as field & value pair, but I find ".1", ".2", ".0" is analysed as string instead of numeric, Is there any way that splunk is analysed as numeric. It's better if it can do so when splunk index the data. Thanks.

Use convert. It is used for this very purpose, converting field values into numerical values.

<yoursearch> | convert auto(<yourfield>)

More information on the convert command is available here: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/4.2.2/SearchReference/Convert

So, to get this straight - do you have a field with the value ".1" in it, but it's not treated as a numerical field?

I have tested "| convert auto(field)", but it doesn't work.

Are there other recommendation. Thanks.
