HI
I am trying to extract Unique IP address from access log to determine the user load.

My request looks like as below
- - [01/May/2014:08:59:49 -0700] POST /connect/group/home/support-query1?p_p_id=myexample_WAR_dsp&p_p_lifecycle=2&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&p_p_cacheability=cacheLevelPage&p_p_col_id=column-1&p_p_col_count=1&action=dispatch HTTP/1.0 200 126 05507 5164

Hi veeru_irf,

try something like this:

your base search here | rex "^(?<myIP>(\d+\.){3}(\d+))" | table myIP

If this matches, you can set it up as automatic field extraction so it will be extracted by Splunk directly.
Also here is a nice little page where you can test regex stuff

hope this helps to get you started ...

cheers, MuS

There is no IP in this log? Does your web server log the IP's for requests at all?
