Hi All,

Am trying to find the usage of correlation. When i try my search using coorelation, it gives me an output, but am unable to understand the result.

index="citicom" alerts|correlate email, application

result gives as
Rowfield email APPLICATION
email 1.00 1.00
application 1.00 1.00

can anyone explain me the coorelation with some simple example?
