How to remove the timezone from my field in a CSV file?

New Member

I'm fetching the data from a CSV file, but the issue with my data is that some of the values are in PDT and some are in PST.

The format is 2016-06-15 04:55 PM PDT. I just want all these values to be of same zone minus the time zone at the end. I want to display my data over a timechart.

Could you post your current search? Is the data from CSV being ingested to Splunk OR being used as lookup table OR direct csv access (inputcsv)?

Hope this can help:

|inputlookup xxx.csv | eval _time=strptime(your_time_field,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M %p %Z") | timechart span=5m count

the display time zone will be the user time zone, same as server time zone by default
the time format could be found in
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.0/SearchReference/Commontimeformatvariables

For some strange reason it is not showing any results.

could you remove |timechart span=5m count, and check if the _time is parsed correctly?

After I changed the name of my time field, _time is getting parsed.

Try this

| inputlookup xxx.csv | eval time=strptime(your_time_field,"%Y-%m-%d %H:%M %p %Z") | bin span=15m time | stats count by time | eval time=strftime(time, "%c")
