A Timechart is a graph produced by applying statistical aggregation to a label over an interval. The X-axis of a timechart will always be time.
Timecharts allow you to see the change in metric value over time. The amount of data visualized on a graph is dependent on the time selection selected within the Dashboard. You can aggregate metrics from multiple sources into a single line, or graph a line per combination of segment labels.
Time aggregation: For example, the average value of
sysdig_host_cpu_used_percent metric is computed for each entity over 1 hour at 1-minute intervals.
Group Rollup: For each
host_hostName the values from time
aggregation are averaged over the scope and the top 10 segments are
shown on the chart.
For information on configuring a chart, see Create a New Panel.
Types of Timecharts
Timechart look and feel can be configured under Display settings when configuring a panel.
When to use
|Line||When quickly identifying outlier segments is important.|
When plotting a single metric over time.
|Stacked Area||When an aggregate view of segments is needed.|
|Stacked Bars||When metrics are sometimes reporting zero.|
