Splunk Search

How do you group results by location and percentage the results?


I have a search result that is tabled, and now, I am trying to find a result by percentage of the location they visit most, A B or C per person.
Noting that each location A, B or C ,have sub locations designated by numbers, e.g. A1234, A2345, A4567 etc.

I'm trying to find the total % based on primary designation e.g. A*, B* or C*.

I can stats sum the events by sub location, but I can't seem to work out how to group the primary designations as a %.


ID     Patron  Location 
123  Bob       A1234
234  Shirley  A1234
123  Bob      B4264
123  Bob      C7894
234 Shirley  B4356
123 Bob       A4561

hopeful result

ID     Patron     A       B    C
123  Bob          X%   X%  X%
234  Shirley    Y%    Y%  Y%


Thank you all in advance for your help.

@davidoking ,

Can you try this and see if it matches your requirements?
