Create time-based charts

This topic discusses using the transforming command, timechart, to create time-based reports.

The timechart command

The timechart command generates a table of summary statistics which can then be formatted as a chart visualization where your data is plotted against an x-axis that is always a time field. Use timechart to display statistical trends over time, with the option of splitting the data with another field as a separate series in the chart. Timechart visualizations are usually line, area, or column charts.

Examples

Example 1: This report uses internal Splunk log data to visualize the average indexing thruput (indexing kbps) of Splunk processes over time, broken out by processor:

index=_internal "group=thruput" | timechart avg(instantaneous_eps) by processor

It'd be nice to have some more examples on the timechart command.
