Hello,

i want all records from some hosts.

How can i find records from hosts that match: host=chvj[34]04ld8[246] ?

Cheers,

Jens

The best solution would be to use a subsearch for this purpose:

* [ | metadata type=hosts | regex host="chvj[34]04ld8[246]" | fields host ]

Alternatively you could search for all events and filter based on the regex:

* | regex host="chvj[34]04ld8[246]"

The second search is not suitable in our environment as we produce to much events.

But the first search seems to be okay. (not nice, tough)

Thanks,

Jens
