Is it possible to autoregress by unique site

Communicator

I get a series of unique sites sending through the size of Database. I would like to show the growth of their DB to see if it is growing too quickly.

I am currently doing this using streamstats and it works fine but is a bit messy. I feel like I could use autoregress to tidy things up, but I cannot find a way to autoregress by site ID.

My current base search leaves a table that is sorted by time but with a mix of unique sites. I would like to compare the latest result from each site with the previous result of THAT site.

Would it be possible to do something like this:

basesearch|autoregress DBSizeCurrent as DBSizePrevious by siteID p=1

This does not work, but I feel like I must be doing something wrong. Or can you not use the 'by' argument in autoregress at all?

Hi Amohlmann,

the autoregress docs http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.6/SearchReference/Autoregress do not mention anything about the usage of by.
You could use streamstats or eventstats to get the previous event, try this run everywhere command:

index=_internal kbps>=10 | streamstats current=f last(kbps) AS last_kbps last(_time) AS last_time by _time | table _time, kbps, last_time, last_kbps

You could also use the window option for streamstats if you need more than just one previous event, see docs for more details http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.6/SearchReference/Streamstats

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Thanks MuS, that is what I am already doing just thought there might have been a work around for autoregress.
Guess not.

Thanks for your help
