branch command usage

You can use the first command in a branch to specify condition or filters for that branch, for example:

| from people | branch [where (age < 13 ) | stats count() BY firstname | into child_names], [where gender = "M" | stats count() BY firstname | into male_names], [where gender = "F" | stats count() BY firstname | into female_names], [stats count() BY firstname | into names]

This search loads all of the people into memory and then sends those events down 4 branches.

  • The first 3 branches use the where command to filter the events for people in particular groups (children, men and women) and then calculates the count using the stats command.
  • The last branch does not specify a filter before the stats command.
