Table Charts

Table charts are the default chart type in the Aggregates tab. They are useful for listing the type and number of events that have occurred, such as the type of error that occurs the most in your system. To create a table chart, use a search query that provides at least a few data points in the Aggregates tab.

For example, you could use the following query to create a simple Table chart:

(error OR fail*) AND exception | count by _sourceCategory | sort by _count

which would produce results such as:

Aggregate

The data in the Aggregates tab is represented as a table chart.

URL Links in table chart panels

If your query looks for URLs, when you create a table chart panel, the URLs displayed in the table will be displayed as working links.

For example, if you used this query to search for hits to the Sumo Logic Help system:

HelpProxyServlet !grr !"Resources" !"Skins" !"Data"
| parse "uri: '*'" as url
| count url
| sort - _count

You would see results such as the following in the Aggregates tab.
