regex help with existing regex

Contributor

have a business area that changed some of their log format which broke my existing regex and having a hard time matching response code. seems my existing regex is pulling two matches from each event. (matching "fromIndex=150" or

*"fromIndex=100"* also in the event) any suggestions to edit this? 

Existing regex: (working before log format change)
\b(?<**http_status**>\d{3}) \d

Having asterisks around the staus complicated things by a bit, it is not good practice to use asterisks like that.

This works :

[\*]{2}(?<http_status>\d{3})[\*]{2}

it doesnt work on line 15 as that is formatted differently than others, is this a mistake or will these events also be in the sample? In that case the regex will need to be slightly different

For confirming and working on regex, I'd recommend this site:

https://rubular.com/

paste the sample events into the test string area and the regex into the reg expression editor and see the magic 🙂

Thanks for the response @martinpu. actually, for whatever reason, the answers.splunk.com format added that. there are no ** around the status codes in the logs. These are IIS logs. Not sure why the format of this page added them. Pasting a few examples again.

Try this:

http([^\s]+) (?<**http_status**>\d{3}) \d

After http matches any word until space then takes 3 digits if those are followed by a space and a digit, I think it should cover everything

thank you @martinpu, i tested this and seemed to extract properly. I'll continue monitor the update I made (very inconsistent logs which the dev team is addressing) and refer to your extraction if necessary. thanks again for all the help!

You're very welcome 🙂

this was the working regex before they changed format

I think this is what you want....

        \*\*(?<http_status>\d{3})\*\*

thx for the response, but this doesn't seem to extract any field, http_status, in from the raw data

How are you trying to use the regex? Are you trying to use it in SPL or as part of a conf? Can you better define what you are trying to collect? The question describes trying to collect the "fromIndex=" value but the regex looks like it is trying to extract the http status value. My suggestion was for the http status code.

this will be done via props. trying to match on the http_status value only, ie 200 or 401 in the raw data provided. the current regex I provided is matching on both "fromIndex=" AND http status fields after the application team changed the log format.

That checks for all the fields to the end of the message, its ugly but got rid of false matches.

thank you @mydog8it , it looks like this may have worked. the log format is pretty inconsistent, so I do have the developers/admins fixing this, but it seems this is matching more accurately now. thank you again for all the help!
