Splunk Search

Need ideas for lookups

Contributor

All,

I am correlating two non-related data types. Email to ERP Customers. I am going to accomplish this by referencing the recipient email address in the ERP customer information.

What I did was load all the ERP customer information into splunk, and then attempted to join them:

get_outbound_email | join recipientlist [search sourcetype="SalesGroups" |eval recipientlist=lower(recipientlist)]  

This actually worked pretty good. Then I ran into a a snag. I want relevant email (current) but the "SalesGroup" information is going to be loaded weekly. So, when I correlate events in the last 4 hours, or even 24 hours, the results are blank because splunk is trying to query the "SalesGroup" source for that time frame too.

I don't think a CSV lookup will suffice in this case, because it's 400k records. However, if it will I can attemp that route.

If I could ignore time on the subsearch, that would be ideal.

Thanks for the ideas!

BAH! That was too easy. earliest=-7d in the search string will work.
