Too Many Time Series Messages

When a metric query returns more than 300 time series, Sumo limits the number of time series in the visualization.

When a metric query returns more than 300 time series, Sumo limits the number of time series in the visualization and any aggregate calculations, and presents a message like this:

Too many time-series matched '(query-selectors)'. Displaying n of m+ matching series. Add more filters to select fewer time series

Where: 

  • query-selectors are the selectors you used in your query.
  • n is the number of time series displayed in the visualization.
  • m is the number of time series that matched your query.

The solution is to add additional selectors to your query to reduce the number of time series returned, for example by adding additional tag=value pairs to the query.  For more information, see Filter Time Series
