Hi,

how to keep the earliest time as constant(Say 12.00AM) and latest as current time (now)in splunk dashboard? requirement is without using timerange picker or token. My earliest time is fixed every day only latest will change.

example: If i open my dashboard at morning 4.00 am then I should be able to see 4.00hrs data (from 12.00 am to 4.00am) or if you open at 8 am then you should be able to see 8 hrs data(12.00 am to 8.00 am).

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to use "earliestTime=X" type commands in your simplexml for each search. Please see here, the first example I think would cover your needs.

You need the bucket (or relative_time) and now functions, as well as subsearches.

Something like this:

Your base search here earliest=[|noop | stats count AS noon | eval now=now() | eval noon = now | bucket noon span=1d | eval noon = noon + (12*60*60) | eval noon = if((now > noon), noon, noon - (24*60*60)) | return $noon] latest=[|noop | stats count AS now | eval now=now() | return $now] | The rest of your stuff here

Sorry, I should have mentioned that it's only a sample, you'll have to modifiy it with the time modifiers to fit your needs.

You'll want something more like "@d" for your earliestTime to snap to the current "day". Not "-@d" and not "-d", just "@d".

FYI, -@d says to subtract a day then find the point at which one day becomes the next and use that as the earliest. -d says go back one day, that's not what you need either. @d says to go back to the beginning of today and start there.
