Visualize data with dashboards and charts.

Learn about visualizing your metrics with dashboards and charts, and how to customize time windows, add legends, configure dashboard variables, and more!

Customizing Dashboards

All users can customize their dashboards. Learn how to find a section, filter using variables or filters, set the time for the dashboard, and share the dashboard with others.

Creating Dashboards

Users with Dashboards permissions can create a new dashboard with one or multiple charts from metrics, a chart type, or an integration.

Dashboards and Charts (v1)
interact dashboards charts

v1 UI! Jason does an in-depth walk-through of dashboards and charts in the v1 UI. You see:

  • How to adjust time windows from the time bar or an individual chart.
  • How to isolate sources or series to narrow down a problem.
  • How to compare data with data from a week or month ago.
  • And more!

Creating Charts (v1)

v1 UI! Watch how Jason creates a chart with the Dashboard > Create chart, customizes it to include a visual threshold, and saves it to an existing dashboard. Jason then puts the dashboard into edit mode to add a new chart directly, and makes configuration changes (units, name of the chart, etc.).

Editing Charts (v1)
sharing content

v1 UI! Jason demonstrates how to customize charts to suit your needs:

  • Align the axis to more easily see the trend associated with data.
  • Show or hide obsolete metrics (older than 4 weeks).
  • Use bucketing and summarization to display exactly what you need.
  • And more!

Jason explains how to use a shortened URL to share dashboard browser status, alert browser status, and chart status.

While this information still applies, we now have additional options for sharing dashboards and charts.
