ParameterTypeRequiredDefaultDescription
limitnumberfalse200The maximum number of events to return. The maximum allowed is 10000.

Examples

Select the 10 newest with loglevel=ERROR

humio
loglevel=ERROR | tail(10)

Select the 100 latest events and group them by loglevel

humio
tail(limit=100) | groupby(loglevel)

Although the default is 200, if a number higher than this is specified, Humio will attempt to return as many results up to that number. For example:

humio
"GET /_images" |tail(1000)

Will return up to 1000 events matching an HTTP GET request for files in the _images directory. If there are only 287 matching events, all 287 will be returned.
