在 Azure Monitor 中,与 Splunk 的 relative_time(datetimeVal, offsetVal) 等效的函数是 datetimeVal + totimespan(offsetVal)。In Azure Monitor, Splunk's equivalent of relative_time(datetimeVal, offsetVal) is datetimeVal + totimespan(offsetVal).
例如,search | eval n=relative_time(now(), "-1d@d") 变成了 ... | extend myTime = now() - totimespan("1d")For example, search | eval n=relative_time(now(), "-1d@d") becomes ... | extend myTime = now() - totimespan("1d").

(1) 在 Splunk 中,使用 eval 运算符调用该函数。(1) In Splunk, the function is invoked with the eval operator. 在 Azure Monitor 中,它用作 extendproject 的一部分。In Azure Monitor, it is used as part of extend or project.
(2) 在 Splunk 中,使用 eval 运算符调用该函数。(2) In Splunk, the function is invoked with the eval operator. 在 Azure Monitor 中,可以结合 where 运算符使用该函数。In Azure Monitor, it can be used with the where operator.


以下部分通过示例演示 Splunk 和 Azure Monitor 如何使用不同的运算符。The following sections give examples of using different operators between Splunk and Azure Monitor.


在以下示例中,Splunk 字段 rule 映射到 Azure Monitor 中的某个表,Splunk 的默认时间戳映射到 Azure Monitor 的 ingestion_time() 列。For the purpose of the following example, the Splunk field rule maps to a table in Azure Monitor, and Splunk's default timestamp maps to the Logs Analytics ingestion_time() column.

在 Splunk 中,可以省略 search 关键字,并指定不带引号的字符串。In Splunk, you can omit the search keyword and specify an unquoted string. 在 Azure Monitor 中,必须在每个查询的开头使用 find,不带引号的字符串是列名,查找值必须是带引号的字符串。In Azure Monitor you must start each query with find, an unquoted string is a column name, and the lookup value must be a quoted string.

SplunkSplunk searchsearch search Session.Id="c8894ffd-e684-43c9-9125-42adc25cd3fc" earliest=-24h
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor findfind find Session.Id=="c8894ffd-e684-43c9-9125-42adc25cd3fc" and ingestion_time()> ago(24h)


Azure Monitor 日志查询从包含筛选器的表格结果集开始。Azure Monitor log queries start from a tabular result set where the filter. 在 Splunk 中,筛选是针对当前索引执行的默认操作。In Splunk, filtering is the default operation on the current index. 还可以在 Splunk 中使用 where 运算符,但不建议。You can also use where operator in Splunk, but it is not recommended.

SplunkSplunk searchsearch Event.Rule="330009.2" Session.Id="c8894ffd-e684-43c9-9125-42adc25cd3fc" _indextime>-24h
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor wherewhere Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| where Session_Id == "c8894ffd-e684-43c9-9125-42adc25cd3fc" and ingestion_time() > ago(24h)

获取用于检查的 n 个事件/行Getting n events/rows for inspection

Azure Monitor 日志查询还支持将 take 用作 limit 的别名。Azure Monitor log queries also support take as an alias to limit. 在 Splunk 中,如果结果已排序,则 head 将返回前 n 个结果。In Splunk, if the results are ordered, head will return the first n results. 在 Azure Monitor 中,limit 不会排序,而是返回找到的前 n 行。In Azure Monitor, limit is not ordered but returns the first n rows that are found.

SplunkSplunk headhead Event.Rule=330009.2
| head 100
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor limitlimit Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| limit 100

获取按字段/列排序的前 n 个事件/行Getting the first n events/rows ordered by a field/column

对于底部结果,在 Splunk 中可以使用 tailFor bottom results, in Splunk you use tail. 在 Azure Monitor 中,可以使用 asc 指定排序方向。In Azure Monitor you can specify the ordering direction with asc.

SplunkSplunk headhead Event.Rule="330009.2"
| sort Event.Sequence
| head 20
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor 返回页首top Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| top 20 by Event_Sequence

使用新字段/列扩展结果集Extending the result set with new fields/columns

Splunk 还有一个 eval 函数,该函数不能与 eval 运算符进行比较。Splunk also has an eval function, which is not to be comparable with the eval operator. Splunk 中的 eval 运算符与 Azure Monitor 中的 extend 运算符仅支持标量函数和算术运算符。Both the eval operator in Splunk and the extend operator in Azure Monitor only support scalar functions and arithmetic operators.

SplunkSplunk evaleval Event.Rule=330009.2
| eval state= if(Data.Exception = "0", "success", "error")
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor extendextend Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| extend state = iif(Data_Exception == 0,"success" ,"error")


Azure Monitor 使用相同的运算符来重命名和新建字段。Azure Monitor uses the same operator to rename and to create a new field. Splunk 有两个独立的运算符:evalrenameSplunk has two separate operators, eval and rename.

SplunkSplunk renamerename Event.Rule=330009.2
| rename Date.Exception as execption
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor extendextend Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| extend exception = Date_Exception

设置结果格式/投影Format results/Projection

Splunk 似乎没有类似于 project-away 的运算符。Splunk does not seem to have an operator similar to project-away. 可以使用 UI 来筛选字段。You can use the UI to filter away fields.

SplunkSplunk tabletable Event.Rule=330009.2
| table rule, state
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor projectproject
| project exception, state


有关不同的聚合函数,请参阅“Azure Monitor 日志查询中的聚合”。See the Aggregations in Azure Monitor log queries for the different aggregation functions.

SplunkSplunk statsstats search (Rule=120502.*)
| stats count by OSEnv, Audience
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor summarizesummarize Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| summarize count() by App_Platform, Release_Audience


Splunk 中的联接具有很强的限制。Join in Splunk has significant limitations. 子查询限制为 10000 条结果(在部署配置文件中设置),联接形式数目也有限制。The subquery has a limit of 10000 results (set in the deployment configuration file), and there a limited number of join flavors.

SplunkSplunk joinjoin Event.Rule=120103* | stats by Client.Id, Data.Alias
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor joinjoin cluster("OAriaPPT").database("Office PowerPoint").Office_PowerPoint_PPT_Exceptions
| where Data_Hresult== -2147221040
| join kind = inner (Office_System_SystemHealthMetadata
| summarize by Client_Id, Data_Alias)on Client_Id


在 Splunk 中,若要按升序排序,必须使用 reverse 运算符。In Splunk, to sort in ascending order you must use the reverse operator. Azure Monitor 还支持定义 null 值的放置位置:开头或末尾。Azure Monitor also supports defining where to put nulls, at the beginning or at the end.

SplunkSplunk sortsort Event.Rule=120103
| sort Data.Hresult
| reverse
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor order byorder by Office_Hub_OHubBGTaskError
| order by Data_Hresult, desc

多值扩展Multivalue expand

此运算符在 Splunk 和 Azure Monitor 中类似。This is a similar operator in both Splunk and Azure Monitor.

SplunkSplunk mvexpandmvexpand mvexpand foo
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor mvexpandmvexpand mvexpand foo

结果分面、相关字段Results facets, interesting fields

在 Azure 门户的 Log Analytics 中,仅公开第一列。In Log Analytics in the Azure portal, only the first column is exposed. 可通过 API 查看所有列。All columns are available through the API.

SplunkSplunk fieldsfields Event.Rule=330009.2
| fields App.Version, App.Platform
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor facetsfacets Office_Excel_BI_PivotTableCreate
| facet by App_Branch, App_Version


可以改用 summarize arg_min() 来反转记录的选择顺序。You can use summarize arg_min() instead to reverse the order of which record gets chosen.

SplunkSplunk dedupdedup Event.Rule=330009.2
| dedup device_id sortby -batterylife
Azure MonitorAzure Monitor summarize arg_max()summarize arg_max() Office_Excel_BI_PivotTableCreate
| summarize arg_max(batterylife, *) by device_id
