Boom Table


Boom table panel for Graphite

Boom Table Panel for Grafana


Boom Table Panel for Grafana. Table/MultiStat plugin with multiple columns for Graphite.

Boom Table - Sample Panel

Features :

  • Multi column support for graphite
  • Individual thresholds for cells based on pattern
  • Multi level thresholds (N number of thresholds)
  • Individual aggregation method for cell based on pattern
  • Time based thresholds
  • Individual cell values can be transformed to helpful texts, based on pattern.
  • Transformed texts can also contain actual metrics
  • Units can be set at cell level based on pattern
  • Row/Column name based on multiple graphite columns
  • Debug UI for patterns

Features Planned / To Do :

  • Sorting
  • Pagination

Supported / Tested Data Sources :

  • Graphite

Tested Grafana versions :

  • Grafana version 4.5.2
  • Grafana version 5.0.2

TLDR : Use debug mode unless you have time to read the below leeeengthy notes.

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
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 metric (seperated by delimiter). Refer below examples and screenshots to get more idea. Or use debug mode to try.

Sample graphite series

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: If your browser and grafana servers are differnt timezone, 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

Example transformation patterns :

GOOD (_value_)|_value_|_value
Time to party|Ill|RIP

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%)
