Eval division of two results of the same field

I want to find the ratio of failures and successful logins. Therefore I use one field in a data model, called Authentication.action. I'm using tstats.

I get two results, in a table.

Authentication.action - count
failure - 7511212
success - 1010802549

I want to use these results in an eval command to divide them between each other and find the ratio of successful logins to every failed login.

Is this possible?

hi @kokanne

try like this

if it is helpful pls accept this

|makeresults |eval Authentication="failure" ,count=7511212 | append [|makeresults |eval Authentication="success" ,count=1010802549 ] |table Authentication count 

|transpose header_field=Authentication |eval division=success/failure |transpose column_name=Authentication
Thanks

Also, these results are not always the same, so the hardcoded count value wouldn't work out

@kokanne

just add that snippet code at end of your query

I see, how can I get the single value of the eval output?

@kokanne

just add |table columnname (which fields you want to display)

Thanks

| tstats summariesonly=true count from datamodel=Authentication by "Authentication.action" 
| search "Authentication.action"!="unknown" 
| transpose header_field=="Authentication.action" 
| eval division=success/failure 

Trying to only display division field, table division doesn't work

Edit: Found out what the problem was, it's fixed

Makeresults has to be the first command in the query, but that is already being used by tstats

makeresults command is just for generating data for sample search.

just try this.

YOUR_TSTATS_SEARCH
|transpose header_field=="Authentication.action"  |eval division=success/failure  

OR

YOUR_TSTATS_SEARCH
|transpose header_field=="Authentication.action"  |eval division=success/failure |transpose column_name=Authentication
