Sysdig users can create customized dashboards to display the most useful or relevant views and metrics for the infrastructure in a single location. This feature-rich dashboards support both form-based and PromQL-based queries and offer several user experience enhancements:

  • Multiple data queries per panel

  • Basic (form-based) and advanced (PromQL) data queries

  • Compare basic query result against historical data

  • Improved granularity of data shown in dashboards. For example, a 1-hour selection shows metrics with 10 seconds intervals.

  • Display up-to-date metrics without time re-alignment.

  • Query support:

    • Allows to query multiple metrics

    • Render the results of a query (time series) as line, bars, stacked area, stairs, text, and so on.

    • Ability to scope and segment each query separately

    • Inherit, augment, or override the dashboard scope

    • Metric descriptor based units with the ability to override

    • Assign Y-axis automatically based on query unit type with the ability to override

Each dashboard is composed of a series of panels configured to display specific data in a number of different formats. Learn more about how dashboards and panels are created, organized, and managed in the following sections:
