Splunk Search

Multiple rex expressions

I'm trying to write to write a search to extract a couple of fields using rex. The text string to search is:

"SG:G006 Consumer:CG-900004_T01 Topic:ingressTopic Session: bc77465b-55fb-46bf-8ca1-571d1ce6d5c5  LatestOffset:1916164 EarliestOffset:0 CurrentOffset:1916163 MessagesToConsume:2"

I trying the following but nothing gets returned:

index=... | rex "MessagesToConsume:(?P<MessagesToConsume>\d+) CurrentOffset:(?P<CurrentOffset>\d+)" | where MessagesToConsume>1 | table CurrentOffset MessagesToConsume

CurrentOffset and MessagesToConsume are always empty, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

Hi @subspacefield ,

if that is exactly how you have in your search then there are 2 issues.

  1. for rex - you need to tell it what to look at: 
  2. Rex works as you would read something - when extracting you need to extract in the order things appear in the data.

Yours rex command:  
| rex "MessagesToConsume:(?P<MessagesToConsume>\d+) CurrentOffset:(?P<CurrentOffset>\d+)"

Corrected rex command:  
| rex field=_raw "CurrentOffset:(?P<CurrentOffset>\d+) MessagesToConsume:(?P<MessagesToConsume>\d+)"
