Query examples

Some useful query examples here.

Log Query examples

Examples that filter on IP address

  • Return log lines that are not within a range of IPv4 addresses:

    {job_name="myapp"} != ip("")
  • This example matches log lines with all IPv4 subnet values except IP address

    	| logfmt
    	| addr = ip("")
    	| addr != ip("")

Examples that aid in security evaluation

  • Extract the user and IP address of failed logins from Linux /var/log/secure

        |~ "Invalid user.*"
        | regexp "(^(?P<user>\\S+ {1,2}){8})"
        | regexp "(^(?P<ip>\\S+ {1,2}){10})"
        | line_format "IP = {{.ip}}\tUSER = {{.user}}"
  • Get successful logins from Linux /var/log/secure

        != "grafana_com"
        |= "session opened"
        != "sudo: "
        |regexp "(^(?P<user>\\S+ {1,2}){11})"
        | line_format "USER = {{.user}}"

Metrics Query examples

  • Return the per-second rate of all non-timeout errors within the last minutes per host for the MySQL job, and only include errors whose duration is above ten seconds.

    sum by (host) (rate({job="mysql"}
        |= "error" != "timeout"
        | json
        | duration > 10s [1m]))
