Step 7: Try a simple data search

Let's try a simple search of our test data.

1. Click on the Search link for your new Virtual Index.


2. Take a look at the data in "ponyindex."


3. Try the following simple search:

- index=ponyindex | rex field=source "/data/(?<file_name>[^/]+)$" | stats count values(sourcetype) as sourcetype values(tasktracker) as tasktracker by host file_name

4. For time range, select "All time". If you do want to use time ranges in your eventual deployment, note that time-dependent search commands work differently (and occasionally not at all) on HDFS directories. For more information, see Search a virtual index.

5. Run your report. In the next step we will save this report and share it with other users.

Step 6: Set up a Virtual Index
Step 8: Search using a sourcetype
