Here is my case.
I have some events which are simply like below.
event1. epochtime=1282182111 type=type1 value=value1 type=type3 value=value3
event2. epochtime=1282182111 type=type2 value=value4 type=type3 value=value5 type=type4 value=value6
It seems like
... | multikv fields type value
not working for my purpose.
My goal is something like to query type="type3" will get both events and do count(type) from these two events will get 5. Is it possible to do that either by setting configuration or by query? Thanks.
You can get this behavior by setting up a custom multivalued extraction for the "type" field. In props.conf set (for your sourcetype or source):
REPORT-type = mv-type
In transforms.conf set:
REGEX = type=(?<type>\S+)
MV_ADD = true
This is exactly what i want.
Thanks, Mr. Sorkin.
By the way, I've heard your speech in Taiwan this June.
It's gorgeous and impressive.
