Primary Dashboards

Full-featured, interactive dashboards come standard with all Hosted Graphite plans!
To create a new dashboard, hover over the + icon on the left side menu and select dashboard. You can add new rows and panels to the dashboard as shown below.
From here you will add a metric to the graph by clicking on the title of the panel, selecting edit to open the graph editor, and clicking on the pencil icon in the query section. Then you can add your metrics to the graph, apply Graphite functions on the metrics, and modify the graph Visualization, Display, Axes, Legend, Thresholds, and Time Regions. Navigate to the settings gear in the top-right corner to assign variables to indexes in your metric series, add annotations, or import/export JSON models.
Check out our full tutorial on Connecting Graphite to Dashboards to find out how to get metrics into the platform. We also have resources for people using other data sources.
To apply a Graphite function to a group of metrics, open the graph editor, click the + icon and select the function to apply.
To zoom in on each graph you can highlight the section of a graph you wish to zoom in on or use the time range class=”example-vids” preload=”auto” controls on the top right. You can also set an auto-refresh rate to have your graphs update automatically. This is especially useful if you have a dedicated display for monitoring your graphs
To organize your panels in rows, simply click on the add panel icon (an image of a bar graph with an + on it, on the top right) and click on Convert to row. You can move panels by simply dragging and dropping them around the dashboard. You can also click and drag the corners making it easy to adjust both height and width. See the different panels you can choose from and learn to build useful dashboards here.
To name save name your new dashboard, click on the floppy icon. To change the name of an existing dashboard, click the options cog on the top right and input the new name in Name then click save. You can also add tags to your dashboards and create folders to help organize them.
Clicking on the Dashboard dropdown lets you choose from your previously saved dashboards. You can also use the search function to filter the results.
You can toggle the side menu by clicking on computer monitor the icon in the top left corner. The side menu provides you with quick access to documentation and support. For more, see our resources on connecting Graphite with Dashboards.
