Selecting & Filtering Fields

LogScale allows selecting single fields and offers searching and filtering on those fields.

  1. Click one field in the Fields Panel (Figure 49, “Fields Panel”) e.g., #severity in the example. A window pops up with the list of values found and the number of occurrences for each:

  3. Click one of the options, for example AggregateGroup by value will group events by the value of that field, TimechartUse field as series will run the timeChart() function on the Search box to show events that have that field grouped into series and plotted in a timechart.

More filter options and interactions with fields are available e.g., exclude or include in the search all events that have the selected field. See Field Interactions.

When the menu is opened for Field Interactions with live queries, the Fields Panel flyout will display a fixed list of top values, these values are kept from the point in time when the menu was opened.
