Join - how do I fillnull on a join?

Champion

Join is much more efficient. Is it possible to fillnull on a join so that I can collect the results for events for which there isn't an event to join?

sourcetype=1 | join host [ search sourcetype=2 | fields host,result ] | table host,result

you can also set the join type to left for example :

sourcetype=1 | join type=left host [ search sourcetype=2 | fields host,result ] | table host,result

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.3/SearchReference/Join

then you will see every restults from sourcetype, and where there is no events from sourcetype2, the field will only be empty. If you want in place of empty, a 0, then you can add a fillnull...

sourcetype=1 | join type=left host [ search sourcetype=2 | fields host,result ] | fillnull value=0 | table host,result

If this is related to your transaction question (http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/59493/mostmore-efficient-way-of-counting-incomplete-transactio...) , you may be disappointed here. I think join will run into subsearch limits and not give you the results you desire when there are enough rows to be joined.
