Splunk Search

How to write custom Text for a Search result?

For my Dashboard I ping a Source and want to see to Text-States: UP or DOWN.

My search statement looks similar like this:

index="main" source="ping" dest="mydomain.com" | stats latest(packet_loss>=0)

A Result >=0 should output DOWN
A Result 0 should output UP

Any Ideas how to archive this?

Thank you!

Thank you! Looks like its very close.

Unfortunately the result is "DOWN" although the result is 0.
