sourcetype=syslog "CPU Temp" | sort –CPU_Temp | table host CPU_Temp
CPU_Temp is a field with a numerical value (Temp of the CPU in celsius)
I'd like to create a chart with the resulting data: x-axis = host y-axis = CPU_Temp
So far everything I've tried with the GUI and the chart command isn't working. Does anyone have any ideas?
Bonus if you can make it show the top 100 CPU Temps!
sourcetype=syslog "CPU Temp" | stats avg(CPU_Temp) by host | sort -avg(CPU_temp) | head 100
or, if you want to have more like a timechart (although by 100 hosts, it might be not that nice)
sourcetype=syslog "CPU Temp" | timechart span=10m avg(CPU_Temp) by host
To get one entry per host you can do:
sourcetype=syslog "CPU Temp" | dedup host | table host CPU_Temp
The avg command is not doing something special - only math like: 100dg, 100dg, 1deg = avg67deg. It may look no concise enough, but is fully ok!
You get that empty chart on the first or second command? Have you tried to play around with the time (last 15mins, all time, etc) ?
