The General tab is used to configure the panel title, description and panel-level links.

  • Title - the panel title, displayed at the top
  • Description - the panel description, displayed on hover of info icon in the upper left corner of the panel
  • Transparent - if checked, removes the solid background of the panel (default not checked)
  • Repeat - repeat a panel for each value of a variable, see Repeating Panels for details
  • Drilldown / detail link - apply a panel-level link which can be triggered from the panel-information icon (top-left) and from the panel content (value/background)
    • Type
      • dashboard - link will target a Statseeker dashboard on the server
      • absolute - link will target a URL, other protocols such as mailto:// and ssh:// can also be referenced
      • report - link will target a Statseeker report on the server
    • Dashboard/URL/Report - the dashboard/URL/report to link to
    • Tooltip - the tooltip to display on mouseover, can make use of dashboard variables
    • Url Params - (requires Type = dashboard/report)key=value pairs to be appended to the end of the URL as parameters
    • Include time range - include the current panel time range as a URL parameter
    • Include variables - include all dashboard variables as key=value pairs to be appended to the end of the URL as parameters
    • Open in a new tab - open the linked destination in a new tab



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



The Options tab a range of presentation options for your singlestat panel.

  • Value
    • Unit - unit to display with value
    • Decimals - number of decimals to present in the value
    • Prefix - custom label to prepend to value
    • Postfix - custom label to append to value
    • Value/Prefix/Postfix size - alter the size of the displayed value/label
  • Coloring
    • Background - apply threshold colors to the panel background
    • Value - apply threshold colors to the value
    • Prefix- apply threshold colors to the prefix label (disabled if gauge is shown)
    • Postfix - apply threshold colors to the postfix label (disabled if gauge is shown)
    • Range - set range start and end points, and the color to apply to values in this range
    • Regex - specify a regex filter, and the color to apply to values satisfying that filter
  • Gauge
    • Show - display gauge
    • Labels - display threshold values on gauge. Requires range (via Coloring: Range or Coloring: Regex) be set.
    • Markers - display threshold mapping on gauge. Requires range (via Coloring: Range or Coloring: Regex) be set.


Value Mappings

Set value to text overrides.

  • Type
    • value to text - map a specific value to text
    • range to text - map a range of values to a single text value
  • Set value mappings
    • value to text - specify the value and text to replace it
    • range to text - specify start and end points of the range, and the text value that will be presented for all values within that range
  • Add a value mapping


Time Range

Apply an override to the dashboard-wide timefilter. Panels with time range overrides refresh, but do not alter their timefilter, when a user:

  • Alters the dashboard time filter settings
  • 'Zooms in' on a graph panel on the same dashboard, changing the timefilter applied to the dashboard

Using panel specific timefilter overrides allows you to easily create dashboards which compare the same data (entity and metric) for different time ranges:

  • Today vs yesterday
  • This week so far vs last week

  • Override relative time - specify a time range for the panel
  • 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


Count of 'Down' Devices

A simple query returning devices reporting a ping state of down.

  • Ping state is a device field, so we set Object to Device > Device
  • Select any field, it doesn't matter which as we will be displaying a count rather than the field values
  • Filter the devices to those reporting a ping state of down
  • Set aggregation to Count

Options Tab


Gauge showing current Device Ping Time

This Singlestat panel features a gauge and colored thresholds to provide Ping RTT. The panel also takes advantage of a dashboard variable to target the panel content to a specified device.
