xyseries

Description

Converts results into a format suitable for graphing.

Syntax

xyseries [grouped=<bool>] <x-field> <y-name-field> <y-data-field>... [sep=<string>] [format=<string>]

Required arguments

<x-field>
Syntax: <field>
Description: Field to be used as the x-axis.
<y-name-field>
Syntax: <field>
Description: Field that contains the values to be used as labels for the data series.
<y-data-field>
Syntax: <field> | <field>, <field>, ...
Description: Field(s) that contains the data to be charted.

Optional arguments

format
Syntax: format=<string>
Description: Used to construct output field names when multiple data series are used in conjuction with a split-by-field. format takes precedence over sep and lets you specify a parameterized expression with the stats aggregator and function ($AGG$) and the value of the split-by-field ($VALUE$).
grouped
Syntax: grouped= true | false
Description: If true, indicates that the input is sorted by the value of the <x-field> and multifile input is allowed.
Default: false
sep
Syntax: sep=<string>
Description: Used to construct output field names when multiple data series are used in conjunctions with a split-by field. This is equivalent to setting format to $AGG$<sep>$VALUE$.

Examples

Example 1: Reformat the search results.

Thanks for noticing this. The link was on the last phrase in that sentence. I've fixed it now to be on "this walkthrough" which I agree with you would be more clear :-)

I think there's a link missing? Example 2: Refer to this walkthrough to see how you can combine stats and eval with the xyseries command to create a report on multiple data series.

"this walkthrough" isn't a link, and it seems like it should be, since there's no walkthrough on this page.
