Note Note that the URL in the browser has changed to flashtimeline. You may see references to flashtimeline from time to time. It is simply another name for the search interface. See the Using the time picker section for details on changing the time frame of your search. Actions Let's inspect the elements on this page. Below the search bar itself, we have the event count, actions icons, and menus. Starting at the left, we have: The number of events matched by the base search. Technically, this may not be the number of results pulled from disk, depending on your search.

Note If a field value looks like key=value in the text of an event, you will want to use one of the field widgets instead of clicking on the raw text of the event. Depending on your event segmentation setting, clicking on the word will either add value or "key=value". The former will not take advantage of the field definition; instead, it will simply search for the word. The latter will work for events that contain the exact quoted text but not for other events that actually contain the same field value extracted in a different way.

If you noticed, we have selected the 2 for the Hour(s) ago option, and Minute for the Snap to option in the Relative tab. The search language equivalent for this selection is -2h@m, which means "go back 2 hours (7,200 seconds) from this moment, and then snap to the beginning of the minute that second falls in". So, given the time 15:11:23, the relative time would 13:11:00. The language is very powerful and can be used whenever a search is specified. Specifying time in-line in your search You can also directly use relative and exact times in your searches.
