Grafana v7.0 is coming soon! Check out this sneak peek of the auto grid layout

April 23, 2020 1 min

Grafana v7.0 is coming next month! Here’s a sneak peek of one new feature: the auto grid layout.

(Editor’s note: Thanks for the input; we’ve moved the video to YouTube.)

This new 7.0 feature is for the gauge and stat panels. Before, stat and gauge only supported horizontal or vertical stacking: The auto layout mode just selected vertical or horizontal stacking based on the panel dimensions (whatever was highest). But in 7.0 the auto layout for these two panels will allow dynamic grid layouts where Grafana will try to optimize the usage of space and lay out each sub-visualization in a grid.

The 7.0 beta is available now! Download here.
