At the moment of writing this document OddEye supports 6 types of charts:
- Pie & Doughnut
Lines are the most common and maybe most usable types of graphs. Lines are very informative, especially when you need to see historical data.
Line charts can be Stacked, Staircase, and have options to have different types of points.
The most common way it to use Line charts with X axes scaled by time .
We will go deeper in chart creation details in Query Builder's Guide
Bars are useful with both Time and Series X Scale. Use Bars if you need to have last values of lots of different metrics in same chart.
The most common use case of Pie & Donut charts are for showing percentage of metrics from whole value. Both Examples above, shows Chart for CPU usage, where you can easily see which part of whole segments is used by particular metric. Pies and Donuts are the same by they meaning, the only difference is just for having richer and nicer visualization.
Gauges or Speedometer charts are usable when you need to see which part of maximum value of particular metric is occupied by its current value. Example above shows CPU metrics as gauges in percent where maximum value of metric can be 100%. Use Gauge when you need to compare values between small number of variables.
A funnel chart displays values as decreasing or increasing (Reverted Funnel) proportions amounting to 100% of total Area size is determined by values of metrics as a percentage of the total of all values.
Treemap charts are used for to visualize comparison of proportions within the hierarchy. Treemaps display data as a set of nested rectangles. Rectangle has an area proportional to a specified value of particular metric. Rectangles are also colored to show a separate dimension of the data.
