Hello, I am new to SPL language. I have been working on 'geostats' recently and not quite sure what 'translatetoxy' or 'locallimit' are used for. Can anybody make clear how those parameters are used?
Any time you find something confusing or unclear in Splunk documentation you should submit feedback on that page. The Docs team is very good about improving documentation in response to user feedback.
As I understand it, the locallimit option controls how many items of each series will be returned. For example, if you used
| geostats locallimit=5 ... by Country
then each country would show 5 entries.
I don't understand the translatetoxy option, but if you want to display results on a map then the option must be set to true.
Thanks for the quick response. I gave a thumbs-up 😁. However I couldn't see any difference from my data so I still feel confused. Could you please post maybe 2 pics that illustrates the differences with different locallimt value?
