Waterfall panel

This panel is intended to visualize a single time series as a waterfall panel, e.g. to show dependencies between jobs running in parallel in a build pipeline, or a series of HTTP requests.

After installation, you can add a new panel type "Waterfall Panel" to your dashboards.

Expected fields

The panel can only handle a single time series, and the time series can consist of these fields:

field typerequireddescription
timeyesstarting point
numberyesduration in seconds

Make sure you select the fields of the time series as a "Table"!

The time frame will be calculated automatically and creates the panel frame. Each tuple will be represented by a bar in the panel, starting at its "starting point" and taking up space relative to its "duration".

Display configuration

  • "Show inline bar labels" will show the labels inside the bars. The labels are populated from the string field.
    • "Show duration in bar labels" will show the duration in seconds inside the bars.
  • "Bar color" is for changing the color of the bars.
  • "Value Time Units" is currently hardcoded to "seconds", but will be expanded in future versions.


Please refer to the development guide.
