Dashboard (New) Panels

Panels are the building blocks used to create a dashboard. Each panel displays analytics for a specific query. The type of panel you choose to display your data depends on the type of query you want to run.

Time Series Panel

Time series panels provide information on a series of data points ordered in time. Typically, a time series is a sequence taken at successive equally spaced points in time. Examples of time series are CPU and Memory over time.

In a time series, time is often the independent variable and the goal is usually to make a forecast for the future. Time series are frequently plotted with area or line charts. 

These are best used for looking at statistics taken over time. Things like CPU, Memory, and disk usage statistics fall into this category.

Time series panels accept aggregate fields with epoch values (milliseconds since 1970).


Log queries can use the timeslice operator to provide a time series.
