Splunk Search

Modifying Timeline Scale

Explorer

Is there a way to specify the scale of the time chart when performing a search.

For instance, if you perform a search over 4 hours it seems to set the scale of each bar to 1 hour, but below 4 hours and it sets the scale to minutes.... I'd like to perform a search that is over the last 24 hours with each timeline bar equal to 1 minute.

Thanks! -Matt

is there any update to this. It would be a good thing to be able to adjust the flash timechart based on what time scale I want.

Take a look at the documentation for the timechart command. You can define the bucketing you want using the span parameter as such:

your search | timechart span=1m count by my_field

To my knowledge there is no way to modify that, as the time ranges and spans are calculated on the fly based on the timespans displayed.

Yes, sorry for the confusion. I'm talking about the flash timechart at the top of the results screen and below the query bar. Is there a way to modify that?

Oh, are you talking about the flash timechart that is displayed every time you do a search? The timechart command is a reporting command.

That seems to replace the results with the count of the number of events for each minute... Can I keep the individual results in the main viewing window, but change the timeline granularity?
