I want to search 2 strings in log file, like "A string" & "B String", A string should be treated as successful and B as Failure. Next I want to overlay both as line timechart, where successful events should go above x-axis and Failure events go below x-axis or they are showed as different colors.How this can be done?

You should post this as a new question, or a comment, instead of an answer to the top question.

But to answer your answer: You can create an alias (called a search macro in Splunk) for a search string in the GUI under Settings - Advanced Search - Search Macros. To use the macro once it's been created, you have to surround your macro with backticks, like this: myawesomemacro(). The parenthesis are best to include, since there are cases where they are required even if you have no arguments.

As for span, you can use span=1d. Check the timechart search command help and you will find thespan option along with some example usage.

There are many ways, but this might be easiest.

source=logfilename "A string"
| eval series = "Success"
| append [ search source=logfilename "B string"
     | eval series = "Failure" ]
| timechart count by series
