How to add the values of a column and show the result as a separate field?

Hello Expebrts,

I am trying to add the values of a column and show the result in another field, but I am not able to generate it.

Example:

index=abc |stats count by name 

Current Output:
a_req 4
a_resp 2
b_req 5
b_resp 5

Desired Output:
a 6

b 10

It should add a_req and a_resp and show a result in new column with the aggregate values

The current search is counting name. If you want to count by a different field, you have to specify that field (and create it, if necessary). Try this:

index=abc | rex field=name "(?<aggrName>\w+)_" | stats count by aggrName
