I need to have a search that uses:
index="pt_app_siebel" SWEMethod="ReconfigureCXProd" starttime=9/6/2013:00:00:00 latest=now date_wday=monday date_hour=22 | ....
But what I need is that the
date_hour to be determined by the current time. Is there any way to include
eval wday=strftime(now(),"%w") before the end of the time range definition?
Hi Tiago - just to clarify, assuming this search is run at 9:55PM on a Thurday night, you want to show all results since 9/6/2013 that happened on a Wednesday between 21:00 & 22:00?
No assuming that the search is run at 9:55PM on Thursday, I want it to show all results from 9/6/2013 till now, and that were on Mondays, and at 21h-22h. THE POINT IS, I NEED TO USE THE now() in date_monday. I just can't make it happen
You can do that in a subsearch, where the sole purpose of the subsearch is to play around with
now(), so that it can return valid earliest/latest values to the outer search. Since I still do not really understand your requirement, the example below illustrates how you can ensure that on Mondays you'll get logs covering the weekend, but on other days you'll only get yesterdays logs.
sourcetype=blah [search * | head 1 | eval earliest=if(date_wday=monday,"-3d@d", "-1d@d")| return earliest] | rest_of_search
Hope this helps,
