Why do the stats table columns don't match?

Motivator

alt textHi,

I have this query that filters the results to a single Premise (8773). It then extracts out the premiseid, macid and rssiid. Each mac has a corresponding rssi value. So far so good but the last mac in the below table does not reflect a rssi value even though one is there. Makes my head hurt to figure out why. Thoughts?

index="camera_status" sourcetype=access_combined_camerastatus 8773|rex max_match=0 "Premise=\s+(?<premiseid>\d+)"|rex max_match=0 "Mac=\s+(?<macid>[a-fA-F0-9\:]+)"|rex max_match=0 "RSSI=\s+(?<rssiid>[^\s]+)"|where rssiid!="dB"|stats values(premiseid) as PREMISE values(macid) as MAC, values(rssiid) as RSSI

The problem here is that you're using values in stats command. The values function dedups and sorts the corresponding values. Your data has two RSSI with -45as value and they are getting removed. Since values sorts the data, the mapping is/can be off. You should be using listfunction instead of values function in stats like this,

index="camera_status" sourcetype=access_combined_camerastatus 8773|rex max_match=0 "Premise=\s+(?<premiseid>\d+)"|rex max_match=0 "Mac=\s+(?<macid>[a-fA-F0-9\:]+)"|rex max_match=0 "RSSI=\s+(?<rssiid>[^\s]+)"|where rssiid!="dB"|stats values(list) as PREMISE list(macid) as MAC, list(rssiid) as RSSI

OR (assuming there is only one PREMISE value per event

index="camera_status" sourcetype=access_combined_camerastatus 8773|rex max_match=0 "Premise=\s+(?<premiseid>\d+)"|rex max_match=0 "Mac=\s+(?<macid>[a-fA-F0-9\:]+)"|rex max_match=0 "RSSI=\s+(?<rssiid>[^\s]+)"|where rssiid!="dB"|stats  list(macid) as MAC, list(rssiid) as RSSI by PREMISE
