Splunk Search

Format results with comma thousands separator

Oren

How do I format the output to have comma separators - I want 1,234,567, not 1234567. Any easy way?

Given a query like:

eventtype=request | sistats sum(http_bytes) as bytes by http_domain | sort -bytes | head 100

I'd like bytes to be more human readable.

You can use the tostring(X, "commas") function in eval (http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/SearchReference/CommonEvalFunctions):

eventtype=request | stats sum(http_bytes) as bytes by http_domain | sort -bytes | eval bytes = tostring(bytes, "commas") | head 100

If you said that, I can't draw chart(or graph).
