How to Get required top users where I am sorting timechart by user

Path Finder

I am showing a timechart by users. I want to show top 10 users on the graph having some particular condition. How to achieve that??

Just to chime in with the others, I do something akin to what you do with the following:

<various search commands> | stats count by Username | sort limit=10 -count

I have a field which is recognised as Username and have found this gets me the result I want best. Not quite a timechart, but, easy enough to modify to get that.

Well what's your particular condition?

The idea is to use the search language before the timechart clause, to filter the set of users down to whatever it is you want, and then pipe those filtered results to timechart count by user. You might use searchterms using the =, < or > operators, you might have a parenthetic clause like (foo OR bar OR baz), or some NOT terms like NOT status=304, you can pipe to the eval or rex commands to do fancier things, then you filter again with another search clause or a where clause, etc. The sky's the limit.
