How to customize our search results using subsearches?

Path Finder

Hi SPlunkers,

We are looking customize our searches by using subsearches.

Search 1:

index=db source="Queue.Depth"|head 1 | stats values(Current_Depth)  -- This gives current queue depth in our MQ

Search 2:

index=db source="Queue.OldestMessageAge" |head 1|stats values(Oldest_Message_Age) as "Oldest_Message_Age_in_mins" -- This query gives us Oldest message Age in our MQ

At the moment, we have some issues with db and sometimes data is not updating. Due to this, we are getting inaccurate results.

So, we are looking for a search using the above 2 searches. Whenever current queue depth (Search 1) in our MQ is "zero", then "Oldest Message Age" (Search 2) should be "Zero".

Can some one please help us?

THanks

Like this:

| noop | stats count AS Oldest_Message_Age_in_mins
| eval Oldest_Message_Age_in_mins=if(([index=db source="Queue.Depth" | head 1 | return $Current_Depth] = 0), 0, [index=db source="Queue.OldestMessageAge" | head 1 | return $Oldest_Message_Age])

Try like this

index=db source="Queue.OldestMessageAge" |head 1|table Oldest_Message_Age | appendcols [search index=db source="Queue.Depth"|head 1 | table Current_Depth ] | eval Oldest_Message_Age=if(Current_Depth=0,0,Oldest_Message_Age)| rename Oldest_Message_Age as "Oldest_Message_Age_in_mins"
