Less than (lt, <)
You can apply this operation either as a Filter or Create column operation:
Filters those events where a value is less than either another field of the same data type or a specified value.
Creates a Boolean column that shows true when a value is less than either another field of the same data type or a specified value.
How does it work in the search window?
Select Filter / Create column in the search window toolbar, then select the Less than operation. You need to specify two arguments:
|is less than (mandatory)||The same as the Value data type|
If you use the Create column operation, the data type of the values in the new column is boolean (true or false).
Working with strings
Be aware that in case you use strings, the values will be compared according to the ASCII code, in which each character has an associated value. If you want to know more about the ASCII code, click the following link.
demo.ecommerce.data table, we want to get only the events where the number of bytes sent is less than 800. To do it, we will apply a Filter using the Less than operation.
The arguments needed for the filter are:
- Value - bytesTransferred column
- is less than - Click the pencil icon and enter 800
Click Filter data and you will see the following result:
Click Create column and follow the same steps to add a new Boolean column that shows true when the values in the bytesTransferred column are less than or equal to 800.
How does it work in LINQ?
Use the operator
where... to apply the Filter operation and
as... to apply the Create column operation. These are the valid formats of the Less than operation:
value1 < value2
You can copy the following LINQ scripts and try the above example on the
from demo.ecommerce.data where bytesTransferred < 800
from demo.ecommerce.data where lt(bytesTransferred, 800)
And this is the same example using the Create column operation:
from demo.ecommerce.data select bytesTransferred < 800 as bytes_lt_800
from demo.ecommerce.data select lt(bytesTransferred, 800) as bytes_lt_800
