Splunk Search

top n by servicename

Contributor

I have a splunk instance with many serviceName's in the logs. Is there a query where I can extract the top 15 of each serviceName? My service names include data such as snmp, syslog, etc. I want the top 15 of each type

Thanks.

I am not sure that I understand the results that you want. If you want to see the 15 most common serviceNames, try this

<your search> | top limit=15 serviceName

This will show the most common 15 serviceNames, along with the number of events for each serviceName. The results are displayed in a table. If you click on a row of the table, you will see the underlying events for the corresponding serviceName.

Splunk's dedup command is right for the job:

<your search> | dedup 15 serviceName
