There has to be a less clumsy way to do this, but this should work -

your search
| rex field=_raw "\<(?<Name>[^\>]+)\>(?<Value>[^\<]+)" max_match=50
| streamstats count as recno
| eval NameValue=mvzip(Name,Value,"=")
| table recno NameValue
| mvexpand NameValue
| rex field=NameValue "(?<Name>[^=]+)=(?<Value>.*)"
| eval {Name}=Value
| fields - Name Value NameValue
| stats list(*) as * by recno
| fields - recno

Also, you can use multikv for this and it should be much simpler/smaller and scale better:

Like this:

| makeresults
| eval raw="Customer=Karen,SalesChannel=Online,UniqueID=a2wert,ProductCode=zebra,ProductName=Maestri,ProductCode=zebra2,ProductName=Maestri2::Customer=Topez,SalesChannel=Online,UniqueID=a23ret,ProductCode=Umbrella,ProductName=Yousty,ProductCode=Umbrella2,ProductName=Yousty2,ProductCode=Umbrella3,ProductName=Yousty3" 
| makemv delim="::" raw
| mvexpand raw
| rename raw AS _raw
| rex max_match=100 "(?<name>[^,=]+)=(?<value>[^,]+)"

| rename COMMENT AS "Everything above is faking your data; everyting below is your solution"

| streamstats count AS _serial
| eval KVP=mvzip(name, value, "=")
| table KVP _serial
| mvexpand KVP
| rex field=KVP "^(?<KVP_key>[^=]+)=(?<KVP_value>[^=]+)$"
| eval {KVP_key}=KVP_value
| fields - KVP*
| stats values(*) AS * BY _serial

Hi DalJeanis,

Thanks for your answer it was exactly my requirement.

One more question i have to ask how can i calculate these that combination count.
I mean if you o back to my qustion asked above i have pasted one XML there in the last after Product Name i would like to see these combination count.

I mean how many time these fields in same combination occured in my data.
I want to identify the count of different combinatition.

Depends on what you mean. If you want to see how many of each Name Value combination occur in the entire search, then right after this...

| table recno NameValue
| mvexpand NameValue

...you can do this instead...

| stats count as Count by NameValue
| rex field=NameValue "(?<Name>[^=]+)=(?<Value>.*)"
| table Name Value Count

On the other hand, if you just want to know how many values the multivalue field has, then use mvcount right after stats...

| eval mycount = mvcount(ProductName)

....... |rex field=raw "(?&lteventData&gt\S+\s+\S+)" maxmatch=50 | eval test = mvjoin(eventData,"#") | rex field=test maxmatch=50 "Customer\s+(?P&ltCustomerValue&gt\S+)#" | rex field=test maxmatch=50 "SalesChannel\s+(?P&ltSalesChannelValue&gt\S+)#" | rex field=test maxmatch=50 "UniqueID\s+(?P&ltUniqueIDValue&gt\S+)#" | rex field=test maxmatch=50 "ProductCode\s+(?P&ltProductCodeValue&gt\S+)#" | rex field=test max_match=50 "ProductName\s+(?P&ltProductNameValue&gt\S+)#" | stats Values(SalesChannelValue) as SalesChannel, values(UniqueIDValue) as UniqueID, values(ProductCodeValue) as ProductCode, Values(ProductNameValue) as ProductName by CustomerValue

Note: Change the initial regex. Instead of Name and Value give as eventData

Hi m7787579,
add at the end of your search

your_search
|rex field=_raw "\<(?<Name>[^\>]+)\>(?<Value>[^\<]+)" max_match=50
| stats values(SalesChannel) AS SalesChannel values(UniqueID) AS UniqueID values(ProductCode) AS ProductCode values(ProductName) AS ProductName by Customer

Beware: the values option put in alphabetical order the found values, so if you have more than one value in two columns, the second of the first column could not be aligned with the second of the second column.

Bye.

Hi Giuseppe,

Thanks for your answer,

But here only Name and Values are field.

Rest of the field like Customer,SalesChannel,UniqueID,ProductCode,ProductName are just the values for Name and i want these values to become as a column name like Name and Values are column name.

Please let me know if you have any doubt

Hi
I didn't use it in this way but probably multikv command (http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.2/SearchReference/Multikv) could solve your problem.
Bye.
