Dataview with Count in a Column

Postby dbartelli » Fri Mar 30, 2012 10:47 am

Has anyone created a dataview that returns the count of something in a column instead of the actual data? I'm looking for an example doing this, but my end goal is to have a dataview that shows the following columns with each row being a different server:

Client Name, Location Name, Server Name, (Count of Windows Event Log Errors)

Ultimately I'll refine that further to say # errors from the past week or some other time period

Here is an example of how I count logs for symantec. I dont really know sql so this might be a bad example but I was able to create what I needed. I dont have a dataview anymore that actually does the query but this is part of what I use in the back end for posting threat counts to an extra data field, then I have a dataview that just shows that EDF along with the client name, computer name and last alert time.

Code: Select all
SELECT DISTINCT eventlogs.computerid AS 'computerid', MAX(eventlogs.timegen) AS 'threattime', COUNT(*) AS 'threatcount'
FROM eventlogs WHERE eventlogs.eventid='51' AND eventlogs.message NOT LIKE '%cookies%' AND eventlogs.source LIKE '%Symantec%'  AND eventlogs.timegen > DATE_ADD(NOW(),INTERVAL -7 DAY) GROUP BY eventlogs.computerid;
