This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
This small app gives you a new, convenient search command called "timewrap" that does it all, for arbitrary time periods. Compare week-over-week, day-over-day, month-over-month, quarter-over-quarter, year-over-year, or any multiple (e.g. two week periods over two week periods).

Just add "| timewrap w" after a 'timechart' command, and compare week-over-week. Or use 'h' (hour), 'w' (week), 'm' (month), 'q' (quarter), 'y' (year).

Beginning in version 6.5.0, the Timewrap command in this app is included in the Splunk search processing language: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/SearchReference/Timewrap

"Now I don't need to twist my brain to get the week vs week graphs right."
"Cool thanks. Playing with timewrap now! Cool tool, especially for noobs"

David Carasso, Splunk’s Chief Mind, wrote this and many other apps, as well as the book Exploring Splunk. We still miss him http://blogs.splunk.com/2015/01/30/remembering-david/.


Q: I'm searching last week, how come my weekly results seem to start on Monday?

A: This is not an error. Timewap relies on the timeframe of the search. You are searching for a 7 day window FROM sunday. That's mon,tues,wed,thurs,fri,sat,sun. If you want to start on Sunday, end your search on Saturday @w-1.

Q: I searched for day over day for a week, but I get 8 lines charted. Why not 7?

A: If you are searching last seven 24 hour periods, which will occur on 8 days, unless you start at midnight. If snap to the start of a day, this will go away.

Q: How can I compare Wednesdays to Wednesdays?

A: Do your search as usual, and filter at the end (filtering up-front will confuse timechart):

.... | timechart count span=1h | timewrap w | where strftime(_time, "%A") == "Wednesday"

Q: How can I change the names of the series?

A: There is now a new "series" option to determines the naming convention of the series names:

  • "relative" gives values like "latest_week", "1week_ago", "2weeks_ago", etc.;
  • "short" gives short span names like "s0", "s1", "s2", etc., which are useful if you need to modify the values with further search commands;
  • "exact" gives convenient values like "week_of_dec01", "week_of_nov24", etc.

"relative" is the default "series" value.

Q: How can I compare today to yesterday to the avg for the week?

Glad you asked. Search for the last 7 days and run this:

| timechart count span=1h
| timewrap  d series=short
| addtotals s*
| eval 7dayavg=Total/7.0
| table _time, _span, s0, s1, 7dayavg
| rename s0 as now, s1 as yesterday

Basically, we're using timewrap over the last 7 days, and then using addtotals and eval to calculate the average over those 7 days. We then rename fields and cut out days 3-7, because we only wanted today, yesterday, and the weekly average.

Q: What is this 'drilldown' command you threw in for nothing?

Currently in Splunk you cannot drilldown into "other" values from a "top" command. For example, if you searched for "* | top 10 host useother=t", clicking on the "other" value will try to search for "host=other"(!), which is wrong.

I added a little search command that adds a _drilldown field that does the right thing -- it will search for "host=* NOT host=VAL1 NOT host=VAL2 ... NOT host=VAL3". It works with 'top' output.

In your simplexml, you'd then say drilldown on


This will drilldown on the _drilldown field value.
