Transactions based on distinct values of extracted field

New Member

Hi,

I'm trying to create transactions from events like this:

Session opened: [some id]

Session closed: [some id]

For a single id I can just use a search like this:

some_id | transaction startswith="Session closed" endswith="Session opened" maxpause=30m
to find sessions that had a break of at most 30 minutes.

The session_id I'm searching with is an extracted field. How would I go about finding the count of these transactions (closed -> opened) per session_id?

This is what I would like to get out:

session           connection_breaks
-----------------------------------
session1          1
session2          5
session3          2

Try like this

some_id | transaction session_id startswith="Session closed" endswith="Session opened" maxpause=30m 
| stats count as connection_breaks by session_id
