Hi,

I have a query which gives me in_usage and out_usage for a device per metric

bla bla ...| table Device metric_name "in_usage%" "out_usage%"  

Now i want to display the top20 in_usage in one line in the line chart graph and out_usage in another line in the same graph by Device and metric_name.

How to do that am little confused.

I tried using below at the end but i dont want to explicitly sort it by out it should be sorted by both in/out

| stats values("in_usage%") as IN_usage values("out_usage%") as OUT_usage by Device metric_name | sort - OUT_usage |head 20

Please help

The sort command can sort on more than one field. For example, sort 0 -OUT_usage, IN_usage.

I tried to sort as you suggested but not working for my case.

if i write like this sort 0 -OUT_usage, IN_usage ----> OUT_usage gets sorted in decending
if i write like this sort 0 -IN_usage, OUT_usage ----> IN_usage gets sorted in decending.

That is the way sort works. It's rather like sorting in Excel. Sort by one column and when there are duplicates in that column, sort by the other column.
How exactly do you want your data sorted? Examples?
