How to print xpath results?

New Member


I have added a directory full of following xml files into Splunk:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="MeasDataCollection.xsl" ?>
<!DOCTYPE mdc SYSTEM "MeasDataCollection.dtd">
<mdc xmlns:HTML="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml">

I would like to print stats or use a chart based upon the /mdc/mfh/st element in the xml files. These files are from multiple sources, and have different "st" values. Here is what I have so far in my search string:

sourcetype="xml" | xpath "/mdc/mfh/st" outfield=st default="hello_world" | chart count(st) AS Platform by type

However, all I see as output is a table with "text/xsl" and "2" - ie. 2 results. I am expected something like "Netio" and "2". It seems like the xpath expression is not working? Any ideas? Is there a simple way to just print all the outfield values in plain text? Thanks in advance.
