Circonus graphs are created and managed under the "Analytics" section.
In addition to simple numeric data, Circonus can ingest data and retain histograms.
📄️ Numeric Data
General Numeric Options
Graph overlays allow you to view data related to a graph atop the graph itself. One of the questions constantly faced by data analysts is "what did this look like last week?" When answering that question in most tools, the approach is to rewind the time window by 7 days and "take a guess" or draw both graphs (current view and current view minus seven days) side-by-side. Graph overlays allow you to view both graphs in the same viewport and directly compare the data visually and numerically via the legend.
Graphs can be very useful to a plethora of users, and not only those that have accounts with Circonus. If you need to share data with a business unit that doesn't normally have access, or perhaps a vendor to whom you want to point out a problem, Circonus allows you to share graphs via an external link that requires no authentication.
📄️ Textual Data
The metric tree indicates text metrics with a small "T" icon next to the metric name. Selecting a text metric will add it to the current graph.
📄️ Time Navigation
Each graph (and worksheet) has time navigation options that allow selecting either a specific date range or a window of recent history pivoting on the current time (last 2 weeks, last 2 hours, etc.)
