Hello Splunkers

 

in my firewall logs, i have three numerical fields, (out_packet, in_packet, bytes)

 

i want to sum these values each field individually but a i want the answer in one record

for example:

index=firewall
| timechart sum (bytes) as bytes , sum (in_packet) as in_packet, sum (out_packet) as out_packet

 

unfortunately it didn't work, please help me with it

 

Thanks ^_^

Stats will give you one record as you said. Timechart will give you lots of records (assuming the time span is wide enough). How are the results you originally had not what you wanted?

Sorry, i just noticed that my post was confusing

what i want is to show the the trends of these three fields in a "line chart" visualization

 

i want the trend by any value of my choosing

for example i want like this, but with multiple fields based on the search

It is still not clear why timechart is not working for you
