This topic provides sample data patterns that you can help you better understand the process of data-pattern creation. Study these patterns before you customize existing data patterns.

Each sample contains sample data from a log file along with the date format and primary pattern. You can correlate the sample data and the primary pattern to understand the fields extracted, the same fields will be available for search.

Note

At the time of indexing, the details field is ignored. It is used to assign miscellaneous information in your data that you do not want to categorize with specific fields. All name=value pairs in the data to which this field is applied are extracted as fields.

This topic contains the following sample data patterns:
