This is documentation for the next version of Grafana. For the latest stable release, go to the latest version.
Trend visualizations should be used for datasets that have a sequential, numeric X that is not time. Some examples are function graphs, rpm/torque curves, supply/demand relationships, and elevation or heart rate plots along a race course (with x as distance or duration from start).
Trend visualizations support all visual styles and options available in the time series visualization with these exceptions:
- No annotations or time regions
- No shared cursor/crosshair
- No multi-timezone x axis
- No ability to change the dashboard time range via drag-selection
X Field selection
Use this option to select a field that contains increasing numeric values.
For example, you could represent engine power and torque versus speed where speed is plotted on the x axis and power and torque are plotted on the y axes.
