Visualize using Rate aggregates

 

New

  

We've introduced three new operations -- RATE_MAX, RATE_AVG, and RATE_SUM -- to help you better visualize counter-style data in metric datasets.

Metric data often contains counters and sums, such as system.cpu.time.user, that are most meaningful when visualized as the rate at which the field is changing. Use Rate operators to clearly chart these metrics.

  • RATE_MAX(<numeric_field_name>): Displays the difference between subsequent field values after applying the MAX operator

  • RATE_AVG(<numeric_field_name>): Displays the difference between subsequent field values after applying the AVG operator

  • RATE_SUM(<numeric_field_name>): Displays the difference between subsequent field values after applying the SUM operator

View our documentation to learn more about using Rate operators in Honeycomb, including how to choose the right query granularity for the best visualization results.

Rate operations are available to all plan types.
