Makemv command question

Path Finder

What is the best way to use the Makemv command when my logs have no delimiter? For example:

field=abcd

Where a, b, c, and d are unique values. I'm looking to get the count of each in my logs, but I am wondering what the best way would be to delimit them. The values will always be a single letter and the "end" of the field/value pair will be a space. For example:

field1=value1 field=abcd field3=value3

Thanks!

I'd add a delimiter (like a comma) with a regex and then makemv afterwards:

| stats count | eval this="abcd" | rex field=this mode=sed "s/(.)/\1,/g" | makemv delim="," this
