2. Reverse aggregated results

The following search uses the stats command to determine the number of different page requests, GET and POST, that occurred for each Web server.

FROM main WHERE sourcetype=access_* | stats count(eval(method="GET")) AS GET, count(eval(method="POST")) AS POST BY host

The results look something like this:

host GET POST
www1 8431 5197
www2 8097 4815
www3 8338 4654

Add the reverse command to the end of the search.

FROM main WHERE sourcetype=access_* | stats count(eval(method="GET")) AS GET, count(eval(method="POST")) AS POST BY host | reverse

The rows in the results are reversed.

host GET POST
www3 8338 4654
www2 8097 4815
www1 8431 5197
