How to edit my regex to extract multiple values for a field?



There is one event.

ex)Normal|2016-05-18 10:52:37|123||10460|tcp||68|allowed|72|12|External||17|ftp

I would like to extract multiple values in one field using regular expressions.


index=network | head 1| rex "(?\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})"

Right now, only one of the field values is extracted.
Example: ip_addr =

I want:
ip_addr =
ip_addr =
ip_addr =

You'll probably want to add the optional parameter max_match=<int> and set it to 0 for unlimited matches.

index=network | rex max_matches=0 "(?<ip_addr>\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3}.\d{1,3})"

Give that a whirl and report back if that's what you need!
