I want to timechart TP99 and need help with the splunk query. Here's my attempt which is not yielding any result.

host=Testserv* source=/var/log/tomcat/myapp/app.log Level=INFO | rex max_match=100 field=Message "(?P<metricdata>[^,]+)[,]" | table metricdata | mvexpand metricdata | rex field=metricdata "(?<metric>\w+)=(?<latencyus>\d+)" | where latencyus>0 | eval latency=latencyus/1000 | search metric="TotalTime"| timechart span=15m exactperc99(latency), exactperc99.9(latency)

The problem you have is that you're missing _time when you get to run the timechart. At the start, in your table command, you need to add _time there. Your search string should then become:

host=Testserv* source=/var/log/tomcat/myapp/app.log Level=INFO | rex max_match=100 field=Message "(?P<metricdata>[^,]+)[,]" | table _time metricdata | mvexpand metricdata | rex field=metricdata "(?<metric>\w+)=(?<latencyus>\d+)" | where latencyus>0 | eval latency=latencyus/1000 | search metric="TotalTime"| timechart span=15m exactperc99(latency), exactperc99.9(latency)
