In principle I would use stats count or stats dc(fieldname) but I need more information about your data.
Can you post some events and give us an example of what you are trying to achieve?

hi gpant,

try uses the function values() used to have these distinct values and dc () to get the number of distinct values.

for more informations, follow this link:

I tried answering but realized it's all guesswork and probably wrong until we get a few events to look at.

It is possible it's something like

... my search earliest=@d | stats dc(client_ag)

But it's too hard to tell.

Could you provide a few events and describe the important pieces for us?
