How to use the "Pattern" tab in Splunk?

Builder

Hi All,

I want to do text analytics in my data and I am thinking of using the "Pattern" tab for that. Actually, I have a "Description" field for my ticket data, and want to know what are the most common "text" or "Patterns" in that field. Somehow I cannot share the data here. so when I write the search:

index=*** source=**** Description=* and run the Pattern tab, it shows only patterns for sample 1000 events, but I want to show for all of my 25000 records. How can I change the sample events to "25000".

Also, I saw that cluster command can be used for grouping the events with common pattern. Please help me in whether I should be using Pattern tab or Cluster command.

Regards
PG

The pattern tab runs searches using the cluster command under the covers and applies some UI post processing to the results. I would recommend you review the documentation for the cluster command here and determine which command options meet your needs best.
