Metrics

The Metrics tab is used to configure the data series to be graphed. What options are available in the Metrics tab depends upon which Query Type is being used, see Query Types for details.

The pie chart requires that you specify:

  • A field to Group By
  • A single unique value field be specified in Fields (the ID field is unique in all instances, use this)

In most instances, the Label should be set to the field specified in Group By. For example, if you group by Location, each pie segment will represent a location. If the Label is also set to Location, then each segment will be labeled with the location it represents.

  • ‘Zooms in’ on a graph panel on the same dashboard, changing the timefilter applied to the dashboard

  • Override relative time – Last – specify a new time range for the panel, relative to ‘now’
  • Add time shift – Amount – override the ‘now’ point with respect to the timefilter being applied to the panel
  • Hide time override info – when unchecked, the current time override setting is displayed in the top-right of the panel header
