Splunk search uses a powerful query language. Begin with simple filtering by learning how to use the keywords "AND" and "OR".
- [Instructor] The Splunk Search feature…can do a lot more than just matching keywords.…Let's try some simple filtering…using some of Splunk's special search syntax.…First, we'll head over to the Search & Reporting app.…Let's search again for boot and I'll hit enter.…You can see we've got 22 events.…You'll start with the AND keyword.…AND lets you filter results down to more…than a single keyword or a filter condition.…For example, we could type boot AND shutdown…and it will filter our results down to a specific message…from system D.…
Here it is.…Started Update UTMP.…You can see this message has both the word boot and shutdown…in it and can be very useful for simple text searches…like this especially with particularly noisy results…but what if you have the opposite problem?…Rather than trying to narrow the search down,…you want to widen it.…This is where the OR keyword comes in.…AND tells Splunk that you want results…that include both search terms.…OR will include results that have either term.…
