conditional average

Hi 

need to calculate the average based on a condition. 

  • testing=true vs testing=false  (lets say field A)
  • field B has the values to average (milliseconds)
  • field C has urls 

something like this:

| stats avg(fieldB, when field A testing true) as trueV avg(fieldB, when field A testing false) as falseV by Field C

Goal is a table like this:

url  | average (true) | average( false).

Try something like this

| eval trueA=if(fieldA=true,fieldB,null())
| eval falseA=if(fieldA=true,null(),fieldB)
| stats avg(trueA) as trueV avg(falseA) as falseV by fieldC

Thanks, that works. Now I understand this - this is making two separate 'fields' based on the condition, to avoid having the calculation either in the eval, or in the stats (which both don't work).
