i have numerous eventtypes defined and in many cases a logging event may have several eventtypes associated with it.
i would like to be able to plot the eventtypes such that i do not get duplicates in the chart/pie chart. for example, i may have a log entry with eventtype=cisco_syslog_types and eventtype=network_port (ie it's a multivariable field)
i understand that there is a 'mvfind()' command where i could potentially do something like
but it returns that the 'mvfind' function is unsupported. i'm using splunk 4.2.1.
i've also tried using the mvindex() command with success, however, as the order of the eventtype mv is never the same, its usefulness is somewhat limited.

I'm not sure what the deal is with mvfind, but would this work?:

mvfind is only available from 4.2.2 - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/SearchReference/CommonEvalFunctions
