Splunk Search

How to edit my search to prevent my sparkline from displaying as a flat line with zeros for values?

Communicator

Hello,

I have the following search:

sourcetype=some_data | stats values(msg_type) first(_time) as start by id_field project_field interface_field | evals and lookups etc...

I would like to add a sparkline to count the individual occurrences of the project_field, however, the below results in a sparkline with a flat line with zeros for values:

sourcetype=some_data | stats values(msg_type) first(_time) as start by id_field project_field interface_field | evals and lookups etc... | stats sparkline count by project_field

When I try to add a sparkline to the beginning of the search, I'm seeing an error because the project_field is one of the grouped by fields.

Any ideas?

thanks!

A sparkline is inherently timestamp-based, yet the data you send into the sparkline has no _time field.
Think about what value you want as timestamp for the sparkline... might be the start field, might be something else... and put that into a field called _time.
