Within my Proxy server logs, I have a field (src_ip) and I would like to only get the first 3 octets of the address.

What I would to get back from something like this, is just...

192.168.0

Is this possible?

You can use the rex command:

... | rex field=src_ip "(?<ip_start>\d+\.\d+\.\d+)"

There will now be a field called ip_start which will have the first 3 octets of the ip address.
