How to edit my search to find the last seen date of our computers?

Explorer

What I am trying to do is currently search for Computers that were last seen 10 days or more ago. Currently right now I have the following search syntax:

ComputerName=* AgentVersion=* | dedup ComputerName| table timestamp ComputerName, AgentVersion.

Do I need an eval and then last seen time? If so how would I do that?

Thank you,
Jack McAloon

What you have done should work if you change timestamp to _time:

 ComputerName=* AgentVersion=* | dedup ComputerName | table _time ComputerName AgentVersion

But this is more efficient:

| metadata type=hosts | rename lastTime AS _time | fields _time host

But it does not give you the other details that you need.
BTW, you should ALWAYS specify index="SomeIndexHere" sourcetype="SomeSourcetypeHere" in your searches.
