Pattern Guidelines

Pattern are regular expressions / name of the metrics. If there are multiple matching patterns, first match will be considered. To see the matching patterns, enable debug mode in Options panel.

Sample graphite series / Influx / Prometheus metrics
alias(carbon.agents.a.cache.queries, 'Carbon A usage')
alias(carbon.agents.b.cache.queries, 'Carbon B usage')

patterns and matching metrics

usage$ --> All the CPU, Memory metrics from prod and dev and also requests_per_sec metrics and also carbon usage
cpu.usage$ --> All the CPU metrics
free --> All the disk freespace metrics
^prod --> All the prod metrics
^dev.*.usage$ --> All the cpu, mem metrics of dev servers
^prod.*.cpu.usage$ --> All the cpu metrics of prod servers --> only
 usage$ --> Carbon usage(Note the space before the pattern)
A usage$ --> Only carbon A usage

Row and Column name guidelines

Row and Col names are derived from series name. If n is wrapped by "_", then that will be replaced by n-th column in graphite/influxdb/prometheus metric (seperated by delimiter). Refer below examples and screenshots to get more idea. Or use debug mode to try.

Sample graphite series / Influx / Prometheus Metrics

Pattern & Output

_4_                         --> cpu
_4_ _5_                     --> cpu usage
_4_ 2 _5_                   --> cpu 2 usage
_4_ use                     --> cpu use
Production _4_ usage        --> Production cpu usage
_series_                    -->
_1_ _1_                     --> server server
_4_ __5_                    --> cpu _usage

Note : If you prefer to change the wrapper from "" to somthing like "~" or "_", you can do it through the option "Row / Column indentification wrapper" in options tab.


Thresholds are numbers seperated by comma. There can be multiple thresholds.



Time based thresholds

Thresholds can be overriden, based on day and time of the browser.

Multiple time based threshold rules can be set for any given pattern. If multiple rule matches, last rule wins. If no rule matches, default thresholds will be applicable. Example given below.

Following notations should be followed when added time based threshold rule

Name : Can be any representation in string but not more than 60 characters.

From : in HHMM format examples: 0000 2400 1330 1250

To : in HHMM format examples: 0000 2400 1330 1250

On : Days seperated by comma. Order doesnt matter. Examples; "Sat,Sun", "Mon,Sun,Tue"

Threshold : Same format as default threshold

Time based thresholds

WARNING: "From" and "To" fields will be compared against timestamp of last data received from server. If the last data point is not availble, then browser time will be considered.

TIPS : If your threshold time rage ranges between two day, (example: 2300 of saturday to 0230 of sunday), then split the rule into two each for saturdary and sunday.

NOTE : If you specify n number threshold levels in default pattern (ex: 20,30),then time based thresholds should also follow same number of levels.

Background color based on thresholds

Works the same way as single stat panel. Background color is a list of colors seperated by pipe symbol. Colors can be named or hexadecimal colors or rgb or rgba. Number of colors should be greater than the number of thresholds.

Example of color patterns:

green|#797979|rgba(0, 0, 255,0.5)|rgb(0, 0, 255)|red

Example of matching patterns:

1:  thresholds  : 5
    pattern     : green|red        
    value       : 5    output  : red
    value       : 6    output  : red
    value       : 4    output  : green

2:  thresholds  : 70,90
    pattern     : green|orange|red      
    value       : 95    output  : red  
    value       : 85    output  : orange
    value       : 65    output  : green

3:  thresholds  : 70,90
    pattern     : red|orange|green      
    value       : 95    output  : green  
    value       : 85    output  : orange
    value       : 65    output  : red

Value transformation based on thresholds

Logic is same as background color. But the value to be displayed can be altered here. Display value will be replaced with the value provided. Values are seperated by pipe. if the value is wrapped with _, then it will represent the actual value.

_value_ will be replaced by actual value

_row_name_ will be replaced by row name. This will be useful when you hide the first column.

_col_name_ will be replaced by row name. This will be useful when you hide the table header.

Example transformation patterns :

GOOD (_value_)|_value_|_value
Time to party|Ill|RIP
_col_name_ : _value_| _col_name_ : _value_| _col_name_ : _value_
_row_name_ : _value_| _row_name_ : _value_| _row_name_ : _value_
_row_name_ _col_name_ : _value_| _row_name_ _col_name_ : _value_| _row_name_ _col_name_ : _value_

Sample value transformation: (Assume your metrics results, 95 and it is percentage data type)

_value_                 -->     95%
GOOD (_value_)          -->     GOOD (95%)
HOT (_value_ > threshold of 80%)     -->     HOT (95% > threshold of 80%)

If your output have more rows and if you require to hide certain rows based on their output value, you can use the filter option to hide those rows.

Filter rows based on value

Repeater / Multistat Example

You can use the boom table as multi stat panel. Refer the details given in issue #40

Multistat panel / Repeater

Using Font Awesome icons in row /column / metric fields

If your row name / col name / transform metrics contains strings that starts with _fa- and ends with _, then they will be replaced with corresponding font awesome icons grafana supported. Example usage given below.

_fa-arrow-up_ -> UP ARROW icon in default color

_fa-arrow-up,green_ -> UP ARROW icon in green color

_fa-arrow-down,red,5_ -> DOWN ARROW icon in red color repeated 5 times

_fa-apple,,5_ -> APPLE icon in default color repeated 5 times

Example implementations of icons in metrics: (Unlimited possibilites like heatmap)

    • Hide first column and headers
  • Heatmap
    • Similar threshold setup
    • First column and headers are hidden

Prometheus Guidelines

Though this plugin was initially designed to support graphite, It is also capable of handling timeseries database like Prometheus. In order to achieve this, you need to alias your timeseries/Prometheus metrics to proper delimited format. Following screenshot explains plugin usage with Prometheus where the metrics are aliased with pipe delimiter. This can be any delimiter like space, dot, etc.#

Prometheus Usage

InfluxDB Guidelines

Though this plugin was initially designed to support graphite, It is also capable of handling timeseries database like influxDB. In order to achieve this, you need to alias your timeseries/InfluxDB metrics to some proper delimited format. Following screenshot explains plugin usage with influxdb where the metrics are aliased with dot delimiter.This can be any delimiter like space, dot, etc.

InfluxDB Usage

Azure Monitor Usage

Same as other time series data sources. You need to properly format your legend to extract the row and column name.
