This topic describes the functions of charts and dashboards provided by Log Service for real-time data analysis.

A chart provides the same functionality as a query and analysis statement. One or multiple charts can be added to and subsequently viewed from a dashboard. When you open or refresh a dashboard, each chart in the dashboard automatically runs the query and analysis statement that it represents.

Log Service also provides the Console embed function that allows you to embed a dashboard into an external web page and choose to view the dashboard from either the Log Service console, or the newly embedded web page. Additionally, Log Service also provides the Drill-down analysis function. With this function, you can set drill-down analysis configurations for a chart when you add the chart to a dashboard, and then use the function to obtain more detailed analysis results.

Limits

  • Up to 50 dashboards can be created for each project.
  • Each dashboard can contain up to 50 analysis charts.

A dashboard can be either in display mode or editing mode.
  • Display mode
    When you select display mode for a dashboard, you can set the parameters for displaying the analysis results as follows:
    • Settings for displaying a dashboard.

      You can set the global query time range for the dashboard, set alert notifications for all charts, set whether to automatically refresh the dashboard page, choose to expand the dashboard to full screen display, and set the display style of all chart titles.

    • Settings for displaying a chart.

      You can view analysis results of the chart, set the query time range for the chart, set alert notifications for the chart, download the chart and the chart log, and check whether drill-down analysis is set.

  • Editing mode
    When you select editing mode for a dashboard, you can set multiple dashboard parameters as follows:
    • Set a dashboard.
      • Add elements to the dashboard. For example, you can add markdown charts, customized charts, texts, icons, and other elements to the dashboard.
      • Add a line to connect two charts. Lines can automatically be adjusted according to chart location.
      • Add a filter. Note that in editing mode you can add a filter, but you need to switch to display mode to filter the chart data.
      • Show or hide grid lines.
    • Set a chart.

      You can modify the query statement represented by a chart and the chart properties, or set a drill-down analysis.
