Splunk Search

Extract a substring and filter the results based on the extracted substring from incoming logs


I am pretty new to Splunk and finding a way to figure out below:
My incoming logs have a field message which contains String formatted value. e.g.


Now I want to filter out messages which don't contain OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME as a String and also extract OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME as a field. I am looking for a single Eval expression to do so.

I'm not sure one can do that with a single eval. Try this query. The regex command filters out events that don't contain OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME and the rex command extracts OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME as a field.

... | regex message!="OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME=\d+ms" | rex field=message "OVERALL_RESPONSE_TIME=(?<responseTime>\d+)" | ...
