How to remove null entries from chart?

New Member

hi to all,

I have a query that produces a chart of hosts, speeds and connection types,

index=*  
| table  host, speed, connection_type
| chart eval(round(avg(speed),2)) OVER host by connection_type

Where my events show that connection_type can be either: T1, T2 or T3

However, I am looking someway to tag (found_all ) or remove rows that don't have all the categories. Is that possible?

my objective is :
1. identify that host4 and host5 don't have all the connection types (remove them from the table if possible) and do an general average for (host1,2,3,6,7)

alt text

Thanks in advance

Try this:

index=*

| table host, speed, connectiontype
| where isnotnull(connection
type)
| chart eval(round(avg(speed),2)) OVER host by connection_type

Also, you could fill them with a null value like "0"or "-" using fillnull

Thanks for your help, however I never capture events connection_type as Null, since they are T1 , T2 or T3. The nulls are seen after the chart is created.

hey, try this run anywhere search

| makeresults | eval host="host1",T1=null(),T2="1",T3="2" | append [| makeresults | eval host="host1",T1="2",T2="4",T3="5"]| append [| makeresults | eval host="host1",T1="2",T2=null(),T3="5"]| append [| makeresults | eval host="host1",T1=null(),T2=null(),T3="6"]| eval found_all=if(isnull(T1) OR isnull(T2) OR isnull(T3),"No","Yes")

In your environment, you should try

index=* 
| table host, speed, connection_type 
| chart eval(round(avg(speed),2)) OVER host by connection_type 
| eval found_all=if(isnull(T1) OR isnull(T2) OR isnull(T3),"No","Yes")

let me know if this helps!
