Displaying the unique number of visitors

It is always good to understand the number of page views and those that are accessed most, but sometimes, it is even better to understand how many of these page views are from unique visitors. Through the web access logs, we can get an understanding of how many unique visitors we have had to our website. For example, it could be helpful to understand whether times of high load are due to the true number of sessions on the website.

In this recipe, you will write a Splunk search to find the unique number of visitors to the website over a given period of time. You will then graphically display this value on a dashboard using the single value visualization.
