How can i run STATS Sum command with group by another field(not date)?



I have a sample data as following, for multiple date, separate space stats.


I am writing the following to find sum of space per object, i am getting incorrect values.

index=avs_os host=dc1prftseix01 sourcetype=stat
| spath output=archobj "{}.object"| spath output=date "{}.date"| spath output=space "{}.write"                                | table archobj,date,space | addtotals
| stats sum(space) as Space by archobj

If i am trying to find the total sum and not using the group by ( | stats sum(space) as Space), i am able to get correct values. Please help

The addtotals command may be throwing off the results. The combined with stats sum means you're adding values twice.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
