Purpose

Generates hash for a given string.

hash32(literal_string) / hash32(literal_string, seed)

Generates a 32 bit hash of the given string.
  • Seed is an optional parameter with default = 0.
  • If seed is not a valid number, then 0 is returned.

hash64(literal_string) / hash64(literal_string, seed)

Generates a 64 bit hash of the given string.
  • Seed is an optional parameter with default = 0.
  • If seed is not a valid number, then 0 is returned.

Warning

  • Default hash implementation is non-crypto.
  • To use xxhash enable compile time flag.

set $.hash = hash64($!msg!field_1 & $!msg!field_2 & $!msg!field_3)
set $!tag= $syslogtag & $.hash;
//send out
