Rex multiple strings from field query

New Member

Morning all,

I hope this is an easy one where i am just missing some login somewhere.

I have a field called errors that houses data that looks like this:

*Fieldname *



This is indicating that a single event can incur multiple errors and i need to pull all the error codes separately (codes are always numerical and always 5 digits long).

The colon and digits after indicate count volumes which are irrelevant and the delimiter is always a semi-colon.

This seems quite an easy pull as the rex is simply "(\d\d\d\d\d):"

However i can't get splunk to spit anything out at all (and ive tried lots of variations).

Ideally i want to stats value the result by user so i end up with something like the below:

user1 56005
User2 66095

any ideas?:

current search = | rex field=errors "(?(\d\d\d\d\d):)"

this will give back the first rex entry only, so i need a way to reproduce and collect an unlimited amount of REX groups.. (each string may contain from 1 to 1000 codes).
