In Splunk, the "dedup" command is used to remove duplicate events from search results based on specified fields or criteria. When applied to search results, the dedup command keeps only the first occurrence of an event and removes any subsequent occurrences that match the specified fields or criteria.
Here's an example of how to use the dedup command in Splunk:
| dedup field1, field2
In the above command, represents the initial search that retrieves events. The field1 and field2 parameters indicate the fields based on which duplicate events should be removed. You can specify one or more fields to be considered for deduplication.
