Commas and decimals

When writing about numbers that appear in a Splunk UI, duplicate them exactly as the UI displays. Otherwise, follow these guidelines.

Use standard American-style formatting for commas and decimal points in numbers.

Commas

When writing numerals that are four or more digits long, use commas to set off groups of three digits.

See the following examples:

  • 1,852,762
  • 2,000

Decimals

When writing numerals with a decimal, use a period for the decimal point and include up to two decimal places. For an amount less than 1, use a leading 0 before the decimal point.

See the following examples:

  • 0.05
  • 3.14
