Splunk Search

Transaction event charting question

Path Finder

I was wondering if it is possible to chart results on a per event basis. By this, I mean that I have defined a transaction in my search. Resulting fields from this search include how long an action took, and how many discreet units of work there was in the action. I want to be able to chart, per transactional event, how long and how many. Is this possible?

Per event along a timeline.. the former. I am not interested in the duration perse.. I am using the transaction command to associate the tran_id.

You mean per event along a timeline, by time of the transaction? Or just a table?

Have you tried using xyseries?

Another approach would be to use the chart command. You would still have to specify an aggregate function, but if you have only one value per transaction then the aggregate will return the original value anyways. So you could try:

| chart sum(duration) by transaction_id
