Splunk Search

Whaat is the tstats dynamic way to set the value on index to prevent wildcard?

Hi Splunkers,

I was wondering if this is possible on tstats command. Get the dynamic value from savedsearch result or lookup? savedsearch or lookup is updating every hour.

 

| tstats max(_time) as last_updated WHERE index=* BY index, host

 



To avoid wildcard.. I was thinking it will be efficient if that is possible.

Appreciate any response.. Thanks!

Hi, maybe something like

|tstats count where [|makeresults | eval index="_internal"|fields index] by index, host

That subsearch can return a field named index which then gets used for tstats.  Hope this helps.
