How can I do a sum of count for if statement?

Contributor

When I do a stats count by a specific column. The count for each of them work. Here is the picture:

But when I actually try to count only the Failed Attempt call. The result is 0. Did I do something wrong here?

In the eval command expressions (and where command too), if a field name contains spaces, you need to enclose them in single quotes not double quotes. With double quotes, they are treated as literal string instead of fields. You did it correctly in line 2 (replace command) but missed in line three. Correcting that would resolve your issue.

Like this

index="monthlycdr"
| eval "Disconnect Info"=replace('Disconnect Info' ,"\"","")
| eval "Failure Rate" = if(match('Disconnect Info',"(?i)Failed Attempt"),1,0)
| stats sum("Failure Rate")

can you avoid the spaces? SPL works better, generally, without them.

index=monthlycdr
|eval DisconnectInfo=replace('Disconnect Info',"\"","")
|eval "FailureRate"=if(match(DisconnectInfo,"(?i)Failed Attempt"),1,0)
|stats sum(FailureRate) as "Failure Rate"

I think following is the only query required. | eval "Disconnect Info"=replace('Disconnect Info' ,"\"","") before stats is required only if double quotes may be present between "Failed Attempt" pattern being matched.

 index="monthlycdr"
|  stats count(eval(match('Disconnect Info',"(?i)^Failed Attempt"))) as "Failed Attempt"
