Hi Somesh,

can we use first(duration) or last(duration) in timechart command?I want to pick only first value in duration

like sampledata:

_time duration
2016-08-02 12:00:00 11.848000
12.031000
query:
transaction command| timechart span=1m list(duration) as duration

thanks.

You're using list function with timechart, so you'd be getting a multivalued field duration for minutes where there is multiple duration. This list will be sorted by the time. So if you want to pick up only a single value, first or last, from this multivalued list, try like this for getting first/oldest duration for that min

transaction command| timechart span=1m list(duration) as duration | eval duration=mvindex(duration,0) 

Replace| eval duration=mvindex(duration,0) with | eval duration=mvindex(duration,-1) for last/latest duration for that min
