Splunk Search

How to generate a search to find the number of created accounts?

Explorer

Hi,

I'm trying to run a search that alerts me when 40 accounts is created within 1 minute. I'm talking about linux users.

I've tried this search:

index=XXX process=useradd | stats count by user earliest:-1m@m | where count > 40

But I don't know it's correct.

Help!

Tks.

try this

index=xxx process=useradd earliest=-1m@m | stats count by user | where count>=40

Try like this (the timerange identifier earliest should be in base search)

 index=XXX process=useradd  earliest=-1m@m latest=@m | stats dc(user) as user_created | where user_created > 40
