strcat [allrequired=<bool>] <source-fields> <dest-field>
- Syntax: <string>
- Description: A destination field to save the concatenated string values in, as defined by the <source-fields> argument. The destination field is always at the end of the series of source fields.
- Syntax: (<field> | <quoted-str>)...

... | strcat sourceIP "/" destIP comboIP
Add a field called comboIP, which combines the source and destination IP addresses. Separate the addresses with a forward slash character. Create a chart of the number of occurrences of the field values.
host="mailserver" | strcat sourceIP "/" destIP comboIP | chart count by comboIP
Add a field called address, which combines the host and port values into the format <host>::<port>.
... | strcat host "::" port address
