Grafana Percent Trend Stat Panel


A panel plugin for Grafana >= 8.1.0 which computes and displays percent with trend compared to a previous value in a stat style big value manner.

Sample panel

Configuration allows to display the percentage value compared to the base value plain or interpret the percentage change as difference ("trend") with a colored (green/red) triangle symbol to see the trend evolution easily.

The idea for this plugin panel was inspired by an article about Embedded Analytics.

This plugin is reviewed by Grafana engineers and released on GrafanaLabs, see Plugins -> Panel (Community): Percentage Trend


Download the latest release (named nikosc-percenttrend-panel-<version>.zip) and unzip it in your grafana plugin folder.


  1. Query two metrics, remember field names, which have to be specified in the next step

  2. Select the field names of the query results and use them to display your percentage trend

    Configure details in panel options
